Since early 2020, CLI has been partnering with two Jordanian non-profit organisations, Bothorona for Training and Capacity Building as well as Drabzeen Human Development, in a project funded by the European Union to support three Jordanian communities to develop and realize their own solutions for economic youth empowerment. In order to achieve this, project partners aim to train and support youth-focused and youth-led civil society organizations (CSO) in North Western Badiah, East Western Badiah, and Al Taybeh to initiate and facilitate a structured dialogue among people effected and concerned by the challenge of youth unemployment, such as young citizens, community leaders, local authorities, and the administration. The core project team supports the CSOs to ensure that this is not a dialogue for dialogue’s sake, but a co-creative exchange that comes up with concrete community development initiatives. CLI’s Online Learning approaches have been integrated into the project, providing the means to go fully online with all activities so far, including core project team and external communications, as well as engaging CSOs via interactive and dynamic online sessions.
The project team, consisting of CLI and its partners Bothorona and Drabzeen, continues its journey toward empowering young Jordanians in Mafraq and Ma’an to convene policy dialogues focused on youth employment opportunities. We are very happy to announce that 15 CSOs in North Western Badya, East Western Badya, and Taybeh collaborated to submit 6 winning applications. Winning teams will be supported in working collectively in their respective communities, will learn from and support one another’s initiatives, and will contribute positively to youth economic empowerment in Jordan.
