UNICEF and partner BDC Jordan is supporting Beit Souf, a female-led enterprise

A female-led organisation in Souf, Jerash, founded to give women a way to generate income, relaunched on Thursday with a focus on youth.

The refurbishment and relaunch of the Beit Souf centre aims to provide training for youth to open up economic opportunities through a new vocational training centre, according to a statement sent to The Jordan Times. The refurbishment was supported by UNICEF’s Amaluna Programme and implemented by the Business Development Centre.

The new training centre will provide 250 youth from the community with training in food processing, entrepreneurship and marketing every year, the statement added.

Private-sector representatives, including those from the tourism industry also attended the launch to sign agreements to help expand the enterprise locally and nationally, according to the statement.
