Supporting our international partners

Despite the challenges caused by the pandemic, we continued working with our many international partners this year.

Announced in 2019, our Education for Employment (EFE) Program – Al-Najah Tunisia program truly got off the ground this year as partnerships were established between member institutions and our local partners. We also successfully wrapped up EFE projects in Senegal and Mozambique, and set the groundwork for new partnerships to be announced in the coming months.

Our programs in Kenya also continued to gain steam. In fact, with so much activity in the country, we consolidated our efforts and reorganized the team to maximize our impact. The Kenya Education for Employment Program continued with great success, as did our collaboration with the Mastercard foundation on Young Africa Works. This included multiple calls for proposals and significant work on building partnerships between our members and Kenyan institutions.
