Description

The influx of Syrian refugees has increased the strain on Jordan's economy. There is more competition for jobs, opportunities, access to health and education, water and energy, and community services. Some communities do not trust the government and look for alternative support networks, sometimes including violent groups, to meet their basic needs. As a result, Jordan is believed to be the single biggest source of foreign fighters from the Middle East and Northern Africa in Syria. This project aims to address the problems and risks that young people in Jordan aged 15-25 face.
