Turning Investments Into Job Opportunities for Palestinian Graduates

Three out of five Palestinian graduates remain unemployed. First time in a fragile and conflict-affected environment, the World Bank’s Development Impact Bond (DIB) under the Finance for Jobs project tackles the youth unemployment in the Palestinian territories. The instrument promotes collaboration with private investors who finances training programs upfront for graduates and allows them to acquire the specific technical skills that a company might need to fill a role. The investors get compensated upon achieved results. The video documents the process through Mariam and Eman’s personal experiences for over a year and generates learning about how it works.
