NJAZ Al-Arab (INJAZ) is a non-profit organization that promotes youth education and training in the Arab World under three pillars: workforce readiness, financial literacy and entrepreneurship. INJAZ started its work in the region in 1999 and in 2004 became the Regional Operating Center of Junior Achievement Worldwide (JAW). Today, INJAZ works in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, the United Arab Emirates, Yemen and Pakistan. Over 2.7 million students have participated in a broad base of entrepreneurship training opportunities aimed at developing basic business skills to start and run their own businesses while obtaining soft skills increasingly demanded by the private sector and eventually fostering success in future careers. Across the region, INJAZ works with 14 ministries of education, over 3,000 schools, 418 universities and a network of 45,000 corporate volunteers and over 200 board members who implement a series of business and entrepreneurship programs that impacted nearly 308,000 youth during 2016-2017. INJAZ has been one of the top 100 NGOs since 2012 and a Member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2016.
