Regardless of nationality, young people living in Jordan – especially adolescent girls – face multiple challenges and barriers to accessing key health, education, economic, and social services that will set them on the pathway to a happy, healthy, productive adulthood.


We connect adolescent girls and boys ages 10-14 with trained young adult mentors who host a series of regular group meetings to provide them with the diverse range of knowledge, life skills, and peer networks that they need to thrive. We also aim to catalyze positive shifts in gender and social norms related to adolescent girls through engaging parents/caregivers, local communities, and key stakeholders in similarly transformative group discussions and activities. 

  • Pathfinder International is expanding its flagship Act With Her program from Ethiopia in sub-Saharan Africa to Jordan in the Middle East. 
  • This project takes a panoramic approach to partnering with young adolescent girls (ages 10-14) in laying the health, education, economic, and social foundations that they need to thrive and navigate healthy, happy, and productive transitions to adulthood. 
  • Leveraging the original investment in and support for this program in Ethiopia from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Elsa & Peter Soderberg Charitable Foundation (EPSCF) has provided Pathfinder with a matching grant to adapt the Act With Her model to meet the specific needs of Jordanian and refugee adolescent girls living in and around Amman, Jordan.

Give women and girls control over their future.

Your support provides the reproductive care women and girls need to thrive.
