After the great success that Noor Al Hussein Foundation achieved in implementing Qudorat phase one program, which was funded by Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation / Enhanced Social Productivity Programs, the foundation is now implementing phase two of the Qudorat Program in the following governorates (Amman, Zarqa, Mafraq, Madaba, Karak and Tafila) over the duration of 24-months.
This goes Under the Jordanian Government’s initiatives for eradicating unemployment and poverty in order to accelerate the pace of social and economic reform and raise the quality and standard of living of Jordanians.
QUDURAT (meaning capacities in Arabic) is a national program designed to promote the abilities of local community Based Organization (CBOs) across Jordan to lead economic development initiatives through effective community engagement and professional design and management of sustainable income-generating projects, by building the capacity of local CBOs all over the Kingdom and provide them with means to establish and manage their own income-generating projects (IGPs) to leverage the living standards of their communities in a sustainable manner.
Promoting local economic development is the key to the sustainability of the income generating projects through effective cross-sector partnerships with the private and public sectors. Building the capacity of CBOs in the business arena will help attract the private sector to partner with the CBO sector, as well as leverage the participation of BDS providers.
