Empower Women Entrepreneurs in Palestine & Jordan

Second Stage Underway

Training session have now concluded, with over 90% of women trained expressing satisfaction with the skills and knowledge they have gained. Several new jobs were created for women within participating associations; NEF also helped one organization create a new website, trained two others in marketing resulting in notable increase in sales from income-generating activities, and worked with all four to create reports on new markets and opportunities for expanding their businesses.

We are still waiting on the final assessment and report to detail our impact on participant incomes; but in the meantime, we have moved into the initial stages of the project's second round. This will involve conducting a needs assessment on women's groups in the target area in northern Jordan, from which we will select four NGOs to receive funding and training.
