The EDU-SYRIA Program and Education for Employment-Jordan Foundation Signed a Memorandum of Understanding

The EDU-SYRIA Program and Education for Employment-Jordan Foundation (EFE) signed a memorandum of understanding at the German Jordanian University on Wednesday 26th of July 2022. 

The Education for Employment-Jordan Foundation is a locally registered non-profit organization established in 2006 and is currently leading a national initiative that aims to create opportunities for young job seekers in Jordan. 

The memorandum of understanding was signed from the GJU side on behalf of the President of the German Jordanian University, Prof. Dr. Ala’aldeen Al-Halhouli, by the Vice President for International Affairs, and from the EFE by Ms. Ghadeer Khafash, Executive Director of Education for Employment-Jordan Foundation. The ceremony was in the presence of Dr. Dhia El-Din Abu Tair, Director of the EDU-SYRIA Project, in addition to the project team and the team of EFE. Both parties addressed various topics focusing on the possibility of integrating the organization’s training and qualification programs for the labor market in the study plans for the undergraduate majors offered by the German Jordanian University. 

EFE visited the Syrian-Jordanian education program corner and discussed how to apply for funding grants to take advantage of future opportunities in light of the increased interest in vocational training. In addition, preliminary plans have been developed to move towards exploiting these opportunities in the interest of the target group.  The Syrian-Jordanian Education Program is keen on welcoming cooperation with various local and international non-profit institutions in order to provide employment opportunities and facilitate access to them for Syrian refugees and disadvantaged Jordanians.
