MTC’s Egypt Project Extended for One More Year

MTC was recently notified that its workforce improvement project in Egypt has been extended for one year.

“We’re grateful to continue working with our government and education partners in Egypt,” says MTC Vice President Greg Niblett. “We’ve had the pleasure of helping thousands of young Egyptians gain the technical and employability skills they need to succeed in the workforce.”

The Workforce Improvement and Skill Enhancement (WISE) project, which is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), began in 2015 and was scheduled to end this year. However, due to strong performance results, the contract has been extended until October 2019.

“It’s been a highly successful project,” adds MTC Vice Chair Jane Marquardt. “In fact, earlier this year, a third party evaluated the WISE project and MTC’s efforts to enhance workforce programs within Egypt, and the evaluation results were outstanding. We have very talented and capable staff who are making a real difference in the lives of so many people.”

In addition to the positive third-party evaluation and the one year extension, MTC also received its second excellent Contractor Performance Appraisal Report (CPAR) from USAID covering the WISE project’s second year.
