The final trainees are being selected from more than 200 applicants through interviews at the EU-funded MedTOWN‘s Social Business Incubator.

Focusing on people with disabilities (PWD), women and refugees from Al-Koura district, the training will start the last week of July, with the beneficiaries distributed in five groups over a period of 19 days each. These sessions will take place face to face at the incubator facilities in Al-Koura in Irbid, if the health status permits it.

The project seeks to establish a nucleus of social entrepreneurship projects that contribute to providing solutions to social problems faced by the beneficiaries, by supporting them to become entrepreneurs in the social and solidarity economy sector through providing an integrated environment for them, and supporting them to build and develop their intellectual and entrepreneurial skills in the field of social businesses.

MedTOWN is a cooperation project financed by the European Union through the European Neighbourhood Instrument for Cross-Border Cooperation, in the framework of the Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 (ENI CBC Med). The aim is to support the role and capacities of SSE actors in the fight against poverty, inequality, social exclusion and environmental unsustainability.
