Where Irbid, Yarmouk University
Topic Education and employment within youth
Description of the event The event in Yarmou University has been one of the biggest FADFED in these last months. More than 600 people came and share their feeling about well selected topics. We decided to organize two different spots for FADFED cause the students were arriving in huge number quantity, so the best way to have a good research has been to split the initiative in two different places. Students were really involved in the event and any of them decide to help us and call them friends to express their opinions.
