Unemployment is a global challenge and it is not the sole responsibility of a specific State or organization. Addressing unemployment requires unified efforts at the global level to reduce its negative impacts, one of which includes societal instability.

Silatech has committed to providing 5 million jobs globally.

Creating and sustaining jobs and economic opportunities for youth needs combined efforts from governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), private sector, universities, financial institutions, and the media to achieve this human objective.

Out of our belief in the wide impact that can be achieved from collaboration, Silatech works with a wide range of local, regional and international partners, and now have over 300 partners from various sectors. With their continued support and commitment to supporting youth, Silatech currently has all the necessary components to achieve its mandate. It has achieved remarkable results by connecting more than 2 million young women and men with employment and economic opportunities in many countries in Africa and the Middle East. The organisation has taken tangible steps to expand in new regions and countries to reach more youth.

If you represent one of the following entities, and believe in the importance of activating the role of youth to achieve social and economic stability in their societies, share the responsibility.


Smart public policy is perhaps the single most important tool for creating economic opportunities for young people. We support governments in developing national strategies focused on empowering youth and developing effective policies and programs that can create a supportive environment for entrepreneurship. If you represent a government in the region interested in specialized research or policy advisory services, we would be happy to collaborate.


Silatech collaborates with a wide network of NGOs in the development ecosystem. If you represent a development or youth-serving NGO in the region, have a look at what Silatech is doing in your country, and see what our programs are about.


Effective career guidance and counseling are virtually non-existent throughout much of the Arab world, and young people often have little or no formal guidance about the career options open to them. We partner with colleges and universities to offer a psychometric assessment tool (Tamheed) tailored specifically for the Arab world, and our Ta3mal employability portals link job seekers with entry level positions.

We work with financial institutions to structure loans and other products designed for youth, saving programs, as well as providing technical assistance marketing and deployment to benefit both youth and financial institutions.

Silatech works with a wide array of local, regional and international partners in the private sector to help them invest in youth. Silatech can help you formulate your business strategies to include youth, as well as directing your Corporate Social Responsibility in effective innovative programs in building capacity of and creating job opportunities for Arab youth.
