Enhancing Bedouin youth vocational skills for employability in Arish and Sheikh Zuwayed in North Sinai is the aim of the SFSD-funded project that comes in line with its commitment to fund youth employment programs and also to target marginalized remote areas.

The overall objective of this 9 month project is to contribute to the overall socio-economic growth of North Sinai and specifically to the amelioration of socio economic conditions among North Sinai's Bedouin communities through increasing the personal and employability skills of Bedouin youth and through their assistance in finding suitable economic opportunities.

The project will enhance Bedouin youth employability through the provision of vocational training, the establishment of vocational training and employment centers, and the provision of job opportunities.

It is expected that the activities of the project will endure beyond its implementation period through the establishment of two training and maintenance centers that will provide technical training and maintenance services.

The project, which is implemented by The Egyptian Humanitarian Relief and Rehabilitation Organization (HRRO), aims to raise the young Bedouins capacities and skills and  to contribute to the creation of jobs in those two areas through: vocational training and rehabilitation of 200 beneficiaries in the field of refrigeration and air conditioning , maintenance of washing machines, computers, mobiles and satellite dishes.

The specialized training is delivered by TRAC experts over 10 training sessions and carried out by the two partner associations (5 sessions each): Al-Fawakhria Association for Social Development in Arish is to handle 100 beneficiaries (20 beneficiaries/session) and Rawabet Development Association in Sheikh Zuwayed, handles the remaining 100 beneficiaries (20 beneficiaries/session).

Al-Fawakhria and Rawabet associations are to provide two locations, one in each area, that are suitable for doing the training and maintenance works. Upon the end of the project, the two centers will develop into permanent centers for the provision of training and equipment maintenance services.

Meanwhile, the Japanese Security humanitarian aid program will help finance  the purchase of equipment necessary to furnish the permanent maintenance centers in Arish and Sheikh Zuwayed.

After passing the training test at the end of each session, trainees receive certificates signed by the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Manpower and Immigration, The Egyptian Humanitarian Relief and Rehabilitation Organization (HRRO), Security humanitarian aid program of the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Sawiris Foundation for Social Development.
