The Jordan Education for Employment (JEFE) organisation and the French Development Agency on Saturday signed a grant agreement worth 5 million euros to launch the "Ilhamy" (my inspiration) project.

The agreement, which was signed on Wednesday during a visit to the Kingdom by Deputy CEO of the French Development Agency, Bertrand Walckenaer, aims to develop local livelihoods and create economic opportunities in Jordan through providing training and financial services to Jordanians and Syrian refugees, the organisation said in a statement.

The project will also enhance the technical skills of about 2,000 beneficiaries by providing them with better ways to increase their incomes, enhance self-confidence and facilitate their social and economic inclusion, it said.

Walckenaer also met the Governor of Mafraq and local partners of the project, which is carried out by Expertise France, the French public agency for the design and implementation of international technical cooperation projects, to enhance civil protection and relief capacity. He also met with the beneficiaries of the "Smart Desert" project to promote sustainable agriculture.
