JOHUD ( Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development)
History and Background

Who we are

Our approach
We place people at the centre of the development process, and encourage them to play a leading role in defining and pursuing their own development needs. In particular, we work with the more vulnerable groups such as women, young people, the elderly and the disabled, because through targeted support, their interests and needs may be better met.
Our beliefs
Everyone is born with fundamental human rights.
JOHUD strives to ensure that these rights are recognised, respected and upheld at all times. JOHUD seeks to promote equity and justice. 
Poverty is a denial of basic human rights. JOHUD’s role is to raise awareness that everyone shares the responsibility to overcome poverty in Jordan.
Poverty increases vulnerability.  JOHUD seeks to mitigate the negative impacts of social and economic shocks on those living in poverty.
The poor have a right to be involved in decisions that affect their lives. JOHUD helps their voices to be heard and uses its own influence to advocate on their behalf
If they have access to resources, people living in poverty can often solve their own problems.  JOHUD aims to play a supportive and facilitative role to accelerate this process of empowerment and self-reliance.
