We work in Jordan with the aim of bridging societal divides, preventing and transforming violent extremism, and empowering young people and women.

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has long been a peace broker in the Middle East and a safe haven for refugees in the region. Today, the overwhelming influx of refugees from Syria strains Jordan’s economic and social fabric, while violent extremism and marginalization of women and youth heighten tensions. Our team bridges divides, prevents and transforms violent extremism, and empowers young people and women.
