GFA is presently implementing the core phase of the “Social Entrepreneurship for Migration and Development” (SEMD) project. This phase is nested within the regional program, “Decent Work in the Middle East”, which is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), under the “Global Program Migration and Development (GPMD)”.
The project ultimately aims to contribute toward strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem and performs as an activating catalyst for the initiation, development and implementation of innovative social solutions in order to benefit migrants, refugees, their families and host communities in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon. The social impact of this program will be achieved via delivering products, services and employment opportunities formed by the social enterprises.
Vulnerable groups shall benefit from these solutions through a variety of examples such as; affordable health care and housing; tailor-made education; accessibility to financial solutions and the provision of information services regarding decent labor practices.
