Italy with UNICEF: 2 million Euros to empower young people in Jordan

AMMAN, APRIL 5 – The Government of Italy, through the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation, has donated EUR 2 million to UNICEF to empower young people in Jordan with the skills and training they need to become economically engaged and secure their futures.

The funds will allow more than 1,500 adolescents and youth, aged between 17 and 24 years and living in vulnerable communities across the country, to become economically engaged through career counselling and skills building, technical and vocational training, and entrepreneurship support.

Ambassador of Italy to Jordan H.E. Luciano Pezzotti said “I am very proud to witness the launch of yet another programme with UNICEF, dedicated to the youth in Jordan, who are the real key for the progress and success of this country, and I commend the wonderful job done by UNICEF in the fields of education, capacity building and economic resilience”

“UNICEF is delighted to partner with the Government of Italy to provide vulnerable young people with critical and future-ready skills that will enhance their employability and help their successful transition to adulthood,” said Philippe Duamelle, UNICEF Representative to Jordan.

With this support from the Government of Italy, UNICEF will continue to implement its Learning to Earning programme – supporting vulnerable adolescents and youth to access meaningful employment and income through training and entrepreneurship support that reflects the needs of the labour market.

Throughout this two-year partnership, UNICEF will aim to reach vulnerable youth in every governorate of Jordan – including in refugee camps. (@OnuItalia)
