Teaching youthThe initiative, which engages with youth, ages 18 to 14, aims at teaching young people demand-driven farming using modern, eco-friendly techniques that increase productivity and conserve water.

Providing life skills training, technical training on hydroponics, and on-the-job training in greenhouses, earnings are to be shared among individuals and reinvested in creating more sustainable growth.

The initial investment is designed to lead self-sufficient businesses within one year. The project also aims at stimulating local economic development in rural areas, building stronger supply chains, and improving food security.

As part of UNICEF’s Learning to Earning program, it will support vulnerable youth and adolescents with access to meaningful employment and income through training and entrepreneurship support.

In partnership with local municipalities, universities, and Jordanian authorities, the project is also being supported by the Government of Canada, Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the US.
