Objectives

MedUP! (2018-2022) aims to increase economic inclusiveness and employment  in Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Palestine, through:

  1. promoting policy and advocacy initiatives and public-private dialogue, to create an enabling regulatory and policy environment
  2. reinforcing 60 social entrepreneurship support organisations through capacity-building and networking
  3. providing financial and technical support to 100 social enterprises

MedUP! will stimulate social entrepreneurship development as an innovative model to address persistent poverty and inequality by harnessing the potential of the youth bulge.
