LinkedIn Outreach for Sudan Initiative

With the lifting of Sudan sanctions, a rebuilding process is underway, and an important piece of this process is re-connecting Sudanese youths, job seekers, governmental and non-profit organisations with international standards in employment and capacity building.

 

For Linkedin users in Sudan, economic opportunity has been scarce; and the situation has been further complicated by the US government sanctions on Sudan that lasted for nearly 30 years, and isolated Sudanese people’s access to international products and services. 

This year and with sponsorship from LinkedIn, ASEIT is joining forces with other Sudanese NGOs who shares the prospect of developing Sudanese societies and youth capacity through training and networking. We work with wonderful brands with the aim to help Sudanese youth and job seekers to tell their stories and show their skills for better opportunities.

Our Project partners 

  •  Global Aid Hand. 
  •  Sadagaat
  •  Yallanbadir.
  •  Youth Forum.
