We are running a year program training with the volunteers and employees of the NGO Ruwwad in Amman, Jordan.

Ruwwad Jordan is a community development organization that works with divided communities through education for children, women empowerment programs and skills building workshops for youth. By 2009, Ruwwad had established a strong presence for itself in the community. The proper infrastructure was in place and core services were set up, in partnership with government and private sector actors. Ruwwad then, in partnership with the Beida Amareen Cooperative, took the Shams Al Jabal model and the MKYEF program to Beidha (Little Petra), a Bedouin town near Petra. The scholars offered their community service and a children’s library was developed in partnership with the Swedish Anna Lindh Foundation.

Sounds of Change supports the creative and (inter)personal developement of the volunteer scholars, in working in their community
