The event

On November 27 2019, An-Najah National University, joined by its partners, will officially launch their project MoreThanAJob (Reinforcing social and solidarity economy for the unemployed, uneducated and refugees). The event will be in held in Grand Hyatt Amman Hotel, Amman – Jordan.

Project and Partnership

MoreThanAJob is a project funded under the EU “ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin” Programme with a budget of €2 million, out of which €1.8 million as EU contribution. The project started on September 4tg, 2019 and will last for three years.

The partnership, led by ANNU, covers four countries (Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon, Italy and Greece).

Main objectives of the project

The main objective of the project is to enforce social inclusion of vulnerable, unemployed populations by applying best practices for more effective collaboration of the SSE actors with the public administration.

MoreThanAJob will promote economic & social development by facilitating the inclusion in the employment & educational system of some of the most vulnerable population groups. It will deliver and demonstrate a framework of best practices for inclusion of the unemployed (including refugees & uneducated) in the work & education system. The framework is based on the collaboration of SSE actors and public authorities for delivering more effectively their services. Selected SSE actors will also be directly supported through sub-grants.

The SSE actors & public institutions will be trained in the application of the framework. Pilot sub-projects applying the framework will also take place. By assisting the target population in entering the economy, we foresee at least 500 new full-time contracts. To make an impact in the long-term, train-the-trainer seminars have been planned, as well as policy recommendations. In the long-term, by applying the framework, we foresee at least 1000 new jobs in each of the target countries yearly. Long-term impact is also expected in the SSE actors’ ecosystem (at least 100 new positions per year in each country).
