East Jerusalem Palestinian Community Workforce Development & Economic Advancement

MATI Jersualem





MATI’s East Jerusalem small business development/support center, located in Sheikh Jarrah, aims to revive hope in East Jerusalem by helping young adults in their 20s and 30s, most with degrees, to rapidly develop new businesses. Participants receive support in creating a solid business idea, business plan, marketing program, and action plan for realization. Within two years, MATI expects that 20 new businesses will be established and 50 new jobs will be created by and for young adults in East Jerusalem.
