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.
Targeting orphans, children of unknown parents, and children of disintegrated families, the project aims to decrease child admissions to residential care institutions by offering communal alternatives. Launched in partnership with the Ministry of Social Development and UNICEF, the project promotes the healthy development of children by providing psycho-social therapy, relying on evidence based interventions, as well as local needs assessments. The project also features weekly psychological sessions including parenting skills and psychological education during its first four months, followed by monthly interventions.
