MoreThanAJob in Palestine supports 50 young people towards employment through Orjuwan sub grant

Partners for Sustainable Development (PSD) is one of the two Palestinian social solidarity economy institutions (SSE), that were supported financially by MoreThanAJob project sub grants. 

The first winning project titled" Orjuwan: Fostering The Economic Empowerment of Fresh Female Graduates (From The Marginalized Areas) and Preparing them to Enrol in the Labour Market" is run by PSD which strives to promote economic and social development by fostering the economic empowerment of fresh female graduates from marginalized areas and preparing them to enrol in the labour market.

The project works with 50 Palestinian young people from low-income socio-economic backgrounds aged between 20-35 through professional programs in the field of graphic design and digital marketing, fostering their capacities of self-employment, providing networking opportunities and encouraging their entrepreneurship.

This will be achieved by providing 10 hours of life skills training, followed by 30 hours on technical training (Digital Marketing & Graphic Design) and 20 hours on Business Planning & Pitching training. The trainings are expected to start during the month of March 2022 once an agreement is signed with the Ministry of Labour in Palestine.

PSD is also working hardly on obtaining new synergies and enhancing the networking with private sector and Community Based Organisations (CBOs) to gain the most benefit.
