Program Description

With support from HSBC Holdings plc, World Learning strengthened the capacity of disadvantaged youth in 14 Wilayas to generate meaningful income and effectively manage their finances.

By collaborating with schools, student clubs, and youth organizations, 21 FREE trained and mentored local partners to lead high-impact workshops that built 21st-century skills (communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking) and financial management skills.

Program Goals

  • 6,510 beneficiaries from underserved communities in Algeria completed personal financial management training.
  • 20,480 beneficiaries from underserved communities in Algeria completed soft skills and budgeting training with local partners.
  • 610 community providers trained in financial management or soft skills in 14 project sites.
  • 14 partner institutions improved their capacity to deliver soft skills and financial management trainings in underserved communities.

The project helped nearly 24,000 Algerian youth to strengthen their potential to earn income and effectively manage their finances. To achieve this ambitious goal, World Learning provided technical support to partner institutions across Algeria, training community mentors to teach youth two critical skill sets: personal financial management and 21st-century job skills.

Over the project period, World Learning trained 713 community mentors to deliver the two course offerings and provided technical and logistical support as those mentors went on to train 22,544 youth in 42 wilayas (states). The project also strengthened the capacities of 51 local partner organizations capable of delivering project activities in the future.
