In Jordan, more than 650,000 Syrian refugees are living in a precarious situation, with no stable future prospects, 80% of them outside the camps. Many of the children are threatened by early school dropout, child labour and by early marriage. Tdh activities focus on helping the refugee population and the host communities to provide fair access to child protection services and to give children support on their path towards resilience.

What we do

Child protection

Tdh protects children and their families by raising awareness about child protection and by strengthening the abilities of the community to better respond to risks children can be exposed to. We also support children in need with personalised psychosocial support. The most serious cases are transferred to our partners for access to specialised services. Youth Committees are created to call for child rights through various activities and events.

Access to justice

Rehabilitation centres do not always offer access to education and reintegration. In collaboration with the Ministry for Justice and the Ministry for Social Development, Tdh and its partner JOHUD organise training courses to develop the skills of professionals in detention centres. Young people in detention are helped in their reintegration by the offered psychosocial activities and professional training. Tdh conducts researches into the access to child justice on the issues of early marriage and traditional justice.

Jordan: helping children to be children again

«We have to remind people worldwide that children are the main victims of conflicts and that they need to be considered first and foremost if we want to avoid harsh consequences on the well-being, safety and education of the generations to come.»
