GrowJO (GiG)

GrowJO (GiG) aims to provide access to income opportunities in various tech and non-tech economic activities for individuals in the gig economy. GrowJO (GiG) will seek to increase the adoption of digital platforms by supporting Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) in training individuals, with focus on youth, women and refugees in underserved communities to access and offer their services on these digital platforms.

The selected sectors served by these digital platforms should include the ones that women and Syrian refugees are active in the most. These sectors can include but are not limited to:

  • Graphic design
  • Data entry and administrative support
  • Translation
  • Tutoring
  • Customer care services
  • Maintenance services
  • Technical support
  • Handicrafts

The incentive will provide matching grants (up to USD 200,000) to cover up to 80% of the total costs of the proposed project including outreach, upskilling, onboarding on the digital platform and follow up.
