SESAME

Started: 2010, completed: 2011.

SESAME is a student initiative, established in cooperation with the Junior Achievement Program and the local branch of INJAZ Jordan. INJAZ is committed to inspiring Jordan’s youth and helping them succeed in the global economy. In order to engage Jordanian student participants, SESAME actively oversaw the conduct of workshops on business idea generation and planning, career planning, and cross-cultural awareness. With much of the Middle East experiencing political and social unrest, the SESAME project was conducted in a time in which the youth was eager to enjoy newly established political, social and economic freedom. The project was designed to equip Jordanian students with skills and competencies necessary to strive in this environment.
