Summary

The protraction of the Syrian conflict has caused massive displacement, and the deterioration of living conditions for Syrian refugees and host communities in neighboring countries. More than half a million Syrians have fled to Jordan - and have no prospects of returning home soon. Community Centers function as "Safe Havens", ensuring better living conditions, dignity and co-existence for Syrian refugees and the Jordanian host community.

Challenge

The vulnerable economic and social situation for many Syrian refugee families results in desperate coping mechanisms, including begging, child marriages and child labor. Children and women are the most vulnerable. Many children do not attend school and live with severe, untreated trauma. Refugee families have little access to livelihood. Furthermore, the situation strains family relations, increasing the risk of violence, abuse and conflicts in the home - rendering children particularly exposed.

Solution

Community Centers ensure better living conditions, dignity and co-existence for Syrian refugees and Jordanian host communities. Community Centers function as a 'Safe Haven' in which children and adults can access supportive and recreational activities, counselling and livelihood training. The Centers target the improvement of children's psychosocial well-being and future prostects through playing & learning activities. And livelihood training for youth and adults to become self-supporting.

Long-Term Impact

The Community Center provides users with a 'Safe Haven', in which they can get war and deprivation at a distance. The Center targets child support, to mitigate the harmful effects of trauma. Youth receive life skills training, so that they can build a better future. Adults receive entrepreneurial education, creating livelihood opportunities and enabling them to sustain themselves and their families. The Danish Refugee Council has solid experience with supporting displaced and host communities.
