Lifesaving assistance to the most vulnerable affected by the Syrian Crisis in Jordan – JOR928/JOR929

As the Syrian crisis enters its sixth year, no real political solution is in sight. Jordan remains constraint by the effects of the Syrian crises and displacement of Syrian refugees impacting Jordan’s economy, education system, health services and infrastructure. Jordan is now host to more than 650,000 registered Syrian refugees (20% of whom reside in camps and the rest in cities and rural areas) with a total of 1.26 million registered and unregistered Syrians residing in Jordan, costing the country over 2.5 $ billion a year. According to UNHCR’s dashboard, the largest concentration of refugees remains in Amman, Irbid, Mafraq and Zarqa.

Overall Objective

To protect and provide life-saving support for the most vulnerable population affected by the Syrian crisis in Jordan.

Specific Objective

Address the most urgent needs of the population (women, girls, boys and men) affected by the Syrian crisis in Jordan while providing safe and protective learning through CARE’s education in emergency (EiE).

Expected Results

ER 1: Increased safety and protection for working children and children at risk of child labor /GBV and for their families via the provision of Conditional Cash for EiE, remedial lessons, and capacity building for teachers, as well as through regular follow-ups. 

ER 2: Urgent basic and protection needs or harsh winter needs met through the increased access to emergency cash and winterization assistance.

Target group/beneficiaries

This project will have 11.152 direct beneficiaries. Vulnerable Jordanian households will represent an overall of 30% of beneficiaries in the project. This contributes to lessening the impact of the refugee crisis on vulnerable segments of the host community, and it decreases the potential for social tension between refugees and their hosts.
