To create economic opportunities for unemployed youth in the MENA so that they can create a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities.
We believe in the positive power of the 70 million unemployed youth in the Middle East & North Africa. When youth have the right skills and opportunities, they help their families, communities, and companies succeed. Youth can transform the trajectory of the region if we give them the chance.
EFE helps young women and men through demand-driven training programs that link them to the world of work while creating opportunities for them to develop their professional skills, build social capital and engage in their communities. At the same time, EFE works to improve the attitudes of educators, employers, and families to change how youth are prepared for the workforce.
