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 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. We also work towards the implementation of restorative juvenile justice.

What we do

Child protection

Tdh provides help to disadvantaged children through psychosocial activities. The most vulnerable cases were followed up on with individualised support. They are often exposed to labour exploitation and gender-based violence. Youth empowerment and community capacity building are also at the heart of Tdh's work, which works in collaboration with public authorities to ensure greater consideration of children's rights throughout the country.

Access to justice

Tdh works with the juvenile police to ensure that they address girls and boys in contact with the law in a way that is appropriate and respects their rights. In detention centres for minors, Tdh is active to offer them vocational training and to develop the skills of officials who supervise the young people. Tdh also works with the authorities to facilitate and encourage the use of alternative measures to detention for children in Jordan.
