Toward A Better Tomorrow for Development and Empowerment​

JORDAN

 

They were set up with the goal of responding to women and adolescents' needs and protecting refugee girls and women from sexual and gender-based violence, and providing them with the information and soft skills necessary to overcome the challenges that come with forced migration and gender inequality. Their work is based on a good understanding of the concept of self-power of the girls. Their work focuses on yoga and self-defense courses which help girls focus on their strengths and regain energy. In this way, girls restore control over their life. In addition, hiking in the historical and local sites, helps the organisation to distribute messages in the community of gender equality and girls' empowerment.
