The ability to take part in the economy, to provide for yourself and your family, is a critical piece to recovery and future-building. Being excluded from the economy means being excluded from a meaningful pathway forward.
That’s why we seek to create an inclusive market economy for the most marginalized and vulnerable, so that they are able to fully participate in economic life. Our Innovation Center in Za’atari Refugee Camp helps Syrian refugees gain the skills and knowledge they need to be competitive in the job market—whether back home or in Jordan. With partner organization Lens on Life, we teach young Syrian refugees how to capture beautiful photographs, giving them a valuable, transferable skill. In Aqaba, our Learning Center provides technical training, administrative support for small businesses, and micro-finance to get families on a level playing field, so that they have the freedom and agency to make the best decisions for their lives.
