The overall objectives of the project are to enhance the contribution of individuals and social institutions in supporting their communities through the provision of social solutions and services implemented through community-based poverty reduction initiatives and enterprises. As a consequence, this will promote the concept of social inclusion for those in need of care, especially youth/women by integrating them into a productive process that qualifies them to engage in a formal economic system, through the establishment and development of community-based entrepreneurial initiatives that foster community innovation. The targeted governorates are Amman (East Amman), Taflieh and Ajloun, with the aim to contribute to the improvement of social and economic services in their communities and the creation of formal employment opportunities (full/part time and voluntary work). This project is funded by the European Union - European Development Fund and implemented through Plan International - Jordan Office and partners, Ruwwad, Alfanar and Euricse.
