CAIRO – 27 December 2017: About 100 unemployed youth in Cairo aged between 18 and 30 will be provided market-driven training as a result of a new partnership announced on Wednesday between Boeing and Education For Employment (EFE) to empower Egyptian young people.
According to a statement issued by aerospace company Boeing, over 350 underprivileged university students based in Cairo will have trainings that aim to strengthen their skills. The trainings will include CV writing, job searching, and interview skills.
As a result of the partnership, a large campaign will be carried out by Boeing and EFE to increase youth awareness about tactics they can use to overcome employment barriers. The whole partnership according to that statement will work on empowering unemployed young men in Egypt.
Chairman of the Board of EFE Egypt, Anis Aclimandos, said that this new partnership will ensure that more Egyptian youth are equipped with the required skills for prosperous employment, career progression and job retention.
“Boeing works with organizations like EFE to reduce unemployment and develop the workforce in marginalized communities. We are excited to see the launch of this program and the impact it will have on Egyptian youth,” Roula Droubi, regional director of Boeing in the Middle East and North Africa said.
Both companies stated in their joint statement that this partnership reflects the “shared beliefs that with the right skills and economic opportunities, young men and women can secure jobs or start businesses that transform their lives.”
Boeing is a large American aerospace company and a leading manufacturer of commercial jetliners and defense, space and security systems. According to its official Facebook page, EFE Egypt is an NGO that seeks to bridge the gap between the youth and the private sector through market-driven educational programs.
