2023 Year In Review

This year 23,641 youth have been positively impacted through EFE’s programs. 
That’s 23,641 youth who are now employed, starting their own enterprises, and more capable of achieving success in the labor market. And 23,641 youth who can support their families and contribute positively to their communities.
We are proud of EFE’s achievements in the most challenging year the region has faced in decades.  As our colleagues in Gaza face unprecedented difficulties, our earnest hope is for the safety of all.
Thanks to supporters like you, young men and women across the MENA region are actively shaping their futures as entrepreneurs, nurses, coders, and more. Your unwavering support drives them toward positive transformation and a brighter future.
We are grateful that you are part of our community and look forward to continuing this impactful journey in the coming year.
