Jordan’s economy is among the smallest in the region. With an insufficient supply of natural resources, the country relies heavily on foreign assistance. Chronic high unemployment rates, especially among youth and women, have taken its toll on the country. To add, Jordan plays host to a large population of refugees. As of last year, it’s home to 675,000 Syrian refugees as well as 2 million Palestinian refugees, many of whom lack access to basic needs and services.
Supporting Vulnerable Families Across Jordan
Proposed people supported: 1,770
Start date: December 2021
Close date: November 2023
Across the country, Syrian refugees lack access to adequate and consistent work, making it difficult for them to support their families. IRUSA is working to promote the economic empowerment and social inclusion of vulnerable Syrian refugees and Jordanians alike across the country through increased access to livelihood opportunities, including professional development services, entrepreneurial training, and financial assistance. This project aims to help those who have been forced to flee their home rebuild and refresh so they may find solace during their time of need.
