Aoun connects poverty-affected youth in Jordan to employment opportunities in blue-collar and home maintenance industries via a tech-enabled platform. Training youth in customer services skills, communication skills, and ICT products in order to help them have a sustainable source of income. 90% of Aoun sales go directly for the youth service providers.

Aoun is committed to providing equal opportunities for women through a nondiscriminatory on-boarding process; and actively restructuring the home maintenance sector through the introduction of a matching platform that links customers with vetted service providers.

Through collaborative partnerships, Aoun hopes to adapt and support the platform to scale it regionally, where this solution can be transformative in fighting poverty, inequality, and exploitation within the maintenance sector.
