The Education for Employment Foundation (EFE) was founded on the belief that when young people have satisfying jobs and the hope of building a future, they help lay the foundation for secure and peaceful societies.
We currently operate in the Middle East and North Africa - the region with the world's highest youth unemployment rate. We are transforming the lives of young people by giving them the opportunity to work and the tools to create productive, independent livelihoods
Through powerful and unique partnerships with business, government, education, and civic leaders in our countries of operation, we design tailor-made training programs that give unemployed young people the specific skills to get and keep a job. Our partners commit jobs before training even begins, giving our graduates a job to look forward to upon completion. Graduates receive ongoing support through our mentoring and alumni networks.
