  3. International Day for the Eradication of Poverty

    Breaking the vicious circle of disability and extreme poverty

    Observed on 17 October each year, the day aims to promote awareness of the need to eradicate poverty and destitution worldwide. People with disabilities who make up some 1 billion of the world’s population are at greater risk of poverty due to discrimination and barriers to participation in all spheres of society that can help them escape poverty and break down prejudices. Inclusion in all development activities is critical to breaking the cycle of poverty and disability.

    Apprenticeships bring skills to young Jordanians

    24 September 2014

    Jordan is a "young" country, with over 60 per cent of its population under 30. But Jordan's youth face the difficult task finding work, as more than half of them are unemployed. Part of the reason is a mismatch between what they learn at school and the skills needed in the labour market. A new programme by the ILO and the International Youth Foundation is trying to give Jordan's young people the skills they need to compete successfully for the jobs that are available.
