In honor of World Refugee Day today, Egyptian comedian and presenter Dr Bassem Youssef, announced that he is part of a promising initiative called ‘Ego Jasmine.’ By teaching these refugees a skill and giving them a job opportunity, the project supports them in becoming self-reliant. Ego Jasmine is the United Mission for Relief & Development (UMR)’s signature project, aimed at helping refugee women. It empowers them economically and socially for self-sufficiency, employment growth, and social justice through innovative efforts.
بمناسبة اليوم العالمي للاجئين حبيت اني اساند مشروع جميل جدا بيتيح الفرصة لسيدات سوريات اضطرتهم الظروف انهم يسيبوا بلدهم…Posted by Bassem Youssef on Saturday, June 19, 2021
Although there are numerous organizations and institutions who aim in supporting refugees everywhere, their main source of support is through financial aid. On the other hand, the best part about this specific project is that it transforms these women refugees who fled their countries under tough circumstances, to entrepreneurs who are supporting themselves and their families.
From crochet, to soap, to face masks, and much more, UMR is helping refugee women develop their crafting, technical, marketing, and business development skills, to help them become self-sufficient and know how to earn an income, no matter where life takes them.
Pay it forward! Spread awareness on this powerful initiative, and purchase their handmade, eco-friendly organic products from their website.
