Country Program

LWF started working in Jordan in 2012 , responding to the refugee crisis caused by the Syrian civil war.

The strategic priority of LWF in Jordan is to empower vulnerable communities to be more resilient and claim their rights through livelihoods, advocacy, and psychosocial support. LWF contributes to the sustainable development of rural regions by providing access to market-oriented skills and jobs, particularly in climate friendly agriculture and in the digital sector, as well as safe spaces for educational and recreational activities.

Over the last decade, LWF Jordan has increased the protection and safety of the most vulnerable and made continuous investments in professionalizing the protection work, while supporting a variety of livelihoods activities as well as improved learning environments in more than 100 schools across Jordan.

Help us make a difference in the lives of people in need in Iraq and other places throughout the world.
