The Project targets 36 national associations and organizations in the various governorates of the Kingdom, where we will be working with 72 of their staff and activists working with the beneficiary associations and organizations. Under the Project we will carry out a range of activities including training workshops, surveys, studies and videos.

The Project has an implementation duration of s 16 months starting in May 2017.

In more detail, the project's main activities are:

Where we will be launching a legal study containing information on the local framework and useful references.

Using colors of the Jordanian Flag, two equal (=) signs one on top of the other in the shape of stones symbolizing a pathway (ladder) that leads to empowerment through respect for human rights.
