INTERNISA in Jordan promotes its job platform in rural areas
Al-Balqa Applied University, the Jordanian partner of the INTERNISA project, launched its campaign on 25-2-2023. This first campaign activity aims to introduce women who are Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) in rural areas to the project objectives, activities, and ways to benefit from its services. The first of these campaigns was in the Kafrin area located in the Jordan Valley. During this campaign, the project team visited the Beit Sowayma Association, where 35 women from the local area participated in the activities. During these visits, the INTERNISA project was introduced to the participants, which aims to build women's digital capabilities and help them enter the labour market by reducing the gap between the digital skills required in the Jordanian labour market and those women. The project team also fully explained the online platform and the mobile application, which provides training services for women in the digital fields. The platform also displays vacancies with the project partners in the participating countries (which are Greece, Jordan, Italy, Spain, Palestine, Lebanon, and Tunisia). As previously mentioned, the platform provides users with effective communication tools with the authorities. The various announced job vacancies, also helps in accessing the labour market inside and outside Jordan.
It is noteworthy that the INTERNISA project in Jordan has established a women's centre equipped with the latest equipment and tools necessary to provide training and access services to the project's platform, as the centre provides services to women on an ongoing basis and provides specialized training courses in digital fields. For his part, the project manager, Dr. Omar Arabiyat, confirmed that such campaigns expand the scope of the beneficiaries of the project and its services, and facilitate access to remote and less fortunate areas, which helps achieve the project's goals of building digital capabilities among NEET women.
