Sadah has finished her studies in retail business and has started her first job, as a trainee at the Dukaneh supermarket in Jordan, but she is ambitious – “In 10 years’ time, I will have my own supermarket. Insha’Allah”, she says in the latest EU Neighbours South video, showing how the EU invests in young and innovative minds to build a brighter future in the Mediterranean.

Sadah has benefitted from training at the Vocational Training Centre, funded by the EU, and is now receiving on-the-job training at the Az Zarqa Dukaneh supermarket, through the EU’s GEMM project. At the end of the training she received a certificate in retail business, allowing her to get a job in a mall or supermarket.

The GEMM project (Governance for Employability in the Mediterranean) was funded by the EU and implemented by the European Training Foundation (ETF) with the aim of addressing the issue of employability by helping address this by enhancing the quality and relevance of vocational education and training systems.

The video is the fourth of nine interviews presenting the testimonies of young people in the Southern Mediterranean who have benefited from EU projects.

The videos are released on the EU Neighbours South Facebook page, or can be seen on the project’s YouTube channel.

They are part of the #EU4YOUTH social media driven campaign (Facebook, Twitter) aimed at raising awareness of EU-funded youth initiatives in the EU Southern Neighbourhood countries: Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The campaign targets one million young people in the age group 18-35 in the EU Southern Neighbourhood countries.
