This project provides sponsorship for one-on-one mentoring for abused refugee women living in Amman, Jordan.
There are nearly three million displaced Syrian refugees living throughout the Middle East. Of this number, about one-third have fled to Jordan.
War has devastated these refugee families. Millions have been forced from their homes into foreign lands with little to no assistance. The UNHCR has cited the situation as being one of the worst humanitarian disasters of our time.
The refugees that are women, along with their children, suffer the most. Due to the lack of all necessary resources, these women are often forced into “survival sex” prostitution and their children sold into slavery.
The Hope Project is there to help.
The Hope Project is a non-profit, volunteer-led aid organization that serves Syrian refugees in Jordan.
The organization works directly with trained psychologists to develop clinical programs that help refugees recover from the traumas of war.
One of the ways that they do this is by providing free mentoring and counseling to abused and widowed women refugees.
The Hope Project has international volunteers stationed in local proximity to hundreds of these women. They are in desperate need of help and friendship. Through this project, we can provide these women with a safe place for conversation and counsel. As well as, free food!
Once we complete this project, The Hope Project will be able to effectively provide the Mentoring Club for abused women for an entire year!
