MicroMentor, a no-cost social network for linking volunteer business mentors to entrepreneurs, recently held the launch of its Arabic version of the platform in Amman, Jordan, and supported by the Minister of Planning and International Cooperation, Wissam Rabadi. 

The MicroMentor platform, a project of international humanitarian organisation Mercy Corps in collaboration with Mastercard, is now available in 179 countries. It was first officially introduced in the Kingdom in April 2019 and is now available in Arabic.

During a keynote speech at the beginning of the event, Rabadi said that employment is a 'major challenge' in the Kingdom, stressing the high unemployment rate among youth and women.
