It’s no secret that world domination has always been in the pipeline for Spark+Mettle, and finally we can reveal that it has officially begun!

 Spark+Mettle is teaming up with HSBC and the British Council to deliver a brand new project in nine countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.

The project, Taqaddam, which means ‘move forward’ in Arabic, will see us working with young people aged 15 and 16, to equip them with the skills they need to flourish and be better prepared for the transition from school into adult life.In many parts of the world today, youth unemployment is a pretty big issue—but for parts of the MENA Region in particular, the average period of unemployment could be nearly 34 months.

 We will be deploying our expertise, resources and experience to raise aspirations and increase the life skills of the young people we’ll be working with, supporting them on their journey to an awesome future.

 Needless to say we are very excited! So please watch this space and stay tuned for more updates from around the globe.
