What is the social or environmental issue being addressed?

While the labor force in North Africa is highly educated, most of the scarce jobs created are for low-skill employees. The unemployment rate of youth in North Africa can reach almost 50%. In addition, antiquated education traditions fail to adequately prepare graduates for the challenges they will face in the global labor market of tomorrow.
