New projects from UfM to help women’s and youth’s employment


Union for Mediterranean (UfM) organized last Friday a seminar to launch phase I of the “Skills for Success: Employability Skills for Women” project in the presence of the Secretary General of UfM, Fathallah Sijilmassi and Ambassador Delphine Borione.  The project seeks to help 450 women and youth from Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco, Egypt and Tunisia to acquire new tools and knowledge necessary to enter the job market.
Parallel to that event, Al-Nahar conducted an interview with Mr. Sijilmassi in which he outlined the Mediterranean aspirations of his institution and described the current projects which will benefit Lebanon.  He noted that the Union has launched a series of investment projects to strengthen the basis of regional cooperation and complementarity as well as projects of a social and economic nature with focus on youth and employment, and on strengthening the social and economic role of women.  He further added that Lebanon will benefit from six UfM projects. Four of these projects aim to strengthen employment, noting that the first is the above-mentioned project, while the second aims to support youth in setting up their own businesses.  The third project will target young women business entrepreneurs and will provide university students with training on ways of successfully searching for jobs and for launching their own businesses.  Finally, the last project is implemented in collaboration with UNIDO and will seek to develop cultural and creative industries.
