Saddam Al Khawaldeh, 30 Mafraq

A Chance to Train and Employ

Saddam's "A Chance to Train and Employ" teaches Ma'an's youth that gainful employment is within their reach if they put forward effort and acquire soft social skills. In spite of limited work opportunities, Saddam has created jobs in cooperation with the Mafraq Development Area and the Mafraq Development Company, to which his participants can apply. Through his program, a group of 15 young girls has already obtained jobs as psychological supporters for Syrian refugees residing in Jordan. Saddam's project also offers youth workshops on CV writing and interview skills to help them market themselves. In the future, he aims to reach more youth in Mafraq, expand to new areas of operation, and network with new employers.
