Jordan River Foundation (JRF) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in 1995 with a focus on child safety and community empowerment. It has been a major player in Jordan’s social and economic development, bringing forth over 20 years of experience to local community empowerment and child safety. JRF has also been supporting homegrown solutions that engage Jordanians and help them address local challenges. Most importantly, JRF places the wellbeing of children at the center of its development initiatives.
Funded by The Royal Hashemite Court, the initiative aims to empower local authorities to facilitate zero interest loans for local community women, across Madaba and Balqa, which in turn would create sustainable income-generating projects that would leverage livelihoods of families and individuals across the two governorates. JRF’s mandate revolves around enhancing the developmental role of women's associations by managing loan portfolios as well as building institutional capacities, mainly in portfolio and project management, as well as monitoring and evaluation. The project’s main objectives include: strengthening the role of local development bodies, building a credit system serving villages in Madaba and Balqa, and leveraging the economic empowerment of women through the development and implementation of sustainable income-generating projects and feasibility studies.
