Nour Al Rasheed

Nour Al Rasheed is the National Programme Officer for the Youth Skills Development Project at UNESCO Jordan. The Project aims at reaching out to the Jordanian youth and young Syrian refugees with the purpose of establishing alternative and sustainable pathways to re-engage them with the education system and their communities. Prior to her work with UNESCO, Nour worked for the Iraq office of the United Nations Population Fund UNFPA, where she focussed on various strategies and projects to increase skills and participation of young people in society. She has also worked as Regional Programme Manager for Save the Children.

In order to cope with and minimise the negative effects of the Syrian crisis on the education system in Jordan, Nour is focussing on youth outreach work, engaging both vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees. Her Action Plan seeks to protect these communities and deal with issues of educational abuse and misconduct that arise under existing legal frameworks.
