Jordan’s exceptional solidarity with the large refugee population that it hosts has also tested the country’s resilience over time. Regardless of nationality, young people living in Jordan adolescent girls especially 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. Their voice, agency, and choices are often more limited compared to boys due to restrictive gender and social norms.
Pathfinder International’s Act With Her project takes a panoramic approach to partnering with adolescent girls in laying the foundations that they need to thrive through the transition to adulthood. We are expanding this flagship project from Ethiopia in sub-Saharan Africa to Jordan in the Middle East.
