■Project Launched!(2011/12/27)

The second phase of Grant Assistance for Japanese NGO Project, funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, has started. (The first phase ended in October 2011.) In this phase, we implement the following programs for the youth living in poverty.

- Training for conducting community services
- Non-formal education courses (sports, theatre, music, art, and story- writing)


This phase will further develop the achievements of the first phase.


Activities during the first phase: voluntary cleaning in a community

We also focus on the followings in order to deepen community’s understanding of youth issues.

- Training for Higher Council for Youth (HCY), a local governmental agency in charge of youth activities
- Workshop for parents

Ambassador Mr. Junichi Kosuge and the second secretary Ms. Yoko Yabui from the Embassy of Japan in Jordan attended the signing ceremony held at the Youth Center.
