The project aims to empower both Syrian refugees and Jordanians as Community Facilitators to respond to their challenges directly and demand their rights rather than remaining passive observers.
Implemented in partnership with Tamkeen Fields for Aid with the support of Open Society Foundation from July 2017 till January 2018, the Syrian Refugees Empowerment Project (SREP) focuses on two key outputs: training members of the community, including Syrian refugees, to act as Community Facilitators (CFs), and spreading essential messages about the right to education and work for all. Training sessions aim to develop technical skills in community mobilization, group facilitation, and teach about relevant legal frameworks, procedural requirements, and sources of specialist support.
Acting as nodes in the network of change and modernization, the CFs reach as many people as possible to guarantee that the lessons of empowerment extend beyond the project itself. In turn, this project advances ARDD’s work as it relates to creating a culture of accountability, respect for fundamental human rights, and universal access to justice.
