Unlocking the Potential of Women
June 22, 2022

BACKGROUND

Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity
June 22, 2022

USAID’s Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning Activity works with implementing partners, local MEL organizations, and the government to ensure USAID’s activities in Jordan achieve their intended results. This is done by undertaking monitoring, evaluation, and strategic assessments, while supporting collaborative learning and adaptation. The activity trains monitoring and evaluation specialists, technical staff and senior management within USAID/Jordan, and USAID partners, to help them effectively monitor and evaluate achievements in their programs against intended results. The activity also supports the government, local firms, academia, non-government organizations, and private sector professionals in developing their monitoring and evaluation management abilities to build a cadre of local experts and remove the need for USAID monitoring and evaluation assistance in the future.

BACKGROUND

Unlocking the Potential of Youth
June 22, 2022

Two-thirds of Jordan’s population are under the age of 30 and the youth unemployment rate is approximately 50 percent. Insufficient employment opportunities and an education system that does not prepare youth for the workforce lead to apathy, frustration, and a perception by youth that they are not included in the process. USAID programming encourages equitable participation of youth in the economy and public life, which is essential for the country’s political and economic stability.

Schools for a Knowledge Economy Project
June 22, 2022

USAID’s school for a knowledge economy (SKEP) project is building and furnishing 25 new schools throughout Jordan, increasing students’ access to inclusive, environmentally-friendly, and student-centered learning environments. To address limited access to public space for extra-curricular activities, nearby communities can access the schools’ multipurpose and meeting rooms, computer labs, and recreational spaces outside of school hours.
