Short Description:

Overall goal

This project aims at alleviating poverty and reducing the increasing unemployment rate in the Palestinian society by targeting an important subdivision of the Palestinian unemployed labour force which is the youth graduates, by developing their capabilities and creating new job posts for them at the local NGOs and private sector institutions at Gaza strip. The project will employ 320 graduates for a period of six month thus generating 50,920 working day opportunities. On the other hand the project will directly target the grassroots organization by developing programs that will help them build their capacity through placing the needed human resources, providing the needed training. This will help both youth and the organizations that will host them by developing and upgrading both capabilities. The NGOs will benefit by exploiting these new resources and the youth in the same time will gain experience in their fields of specializations.
