This project: "Building the Future for Yemeni Youth Project" aims to improve the lives of more than (660) Yemeni youth and their families through training them to provide job opportunities in the various districts of Aden and in the surrounding governorates in coordination with the Yemeni government and local authorities in order to achieve a living and economic balance by attracting these young people and qualifying their capacities by providing the program services to them, so as to train them on the best professional practices in a way that raises the efficiency of the various sectors in Yemen.

The first component of the project targets (55) young men and women with an aim to help the beneficiaries best acquire the personal and practical skills that make them the ideal choice for employers in filling job vacancies that the project sought to secure in the phase of assessing the labor market needs of skilled workers.

The second component targets (45) young men and women who have dropped out of education by providing them with professional and entrepreneurial skills that are commensurate with their personal and behavioral tendencies and abilities.
