EFE-Jordan Kicks Off "My Craft is My Mark” Initiative

EFE-Jordan began an initiative called "My Craft is My Mark" to raise awareness among young Jordanians about skilled crafts professions. The initiative was launched in partnership with the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) project “Employment Oriented Vocational Training for Skilled Crafts”, which is implemented on behalf of the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Kreishandwerkerschaft Steinfurt-Warendorf (KH ST-WAF), and Ministry of Labour and Technical and Vocational Skills Development Commission (TVSDC). As EFE-Jordan CEO Ghadeer Khuffash stated, “Youth across Jordan, especially females, are ambitious and eager to learn, yet many continue to endure the prevailing reality of unemployment. It is important for us at EFE-Jordan to help erase any stigmas or misconceptions associated with skilled crafts that may be hindering young men and women from taking on certain jobs and bettering their futures."
