Siraj Haddadin, 21 East Amman

Siraj for Sustainable Development

Through her initiative, Siraj trains young Jordanians from less fortunate communities - with a special focus on those who have dropped out of school - to create and carry out community projects. Among its accomplishments, her program has hosted workshops for youth who work on university initiatives; held a creativity camp for children that featured a horse race in Wadi Rum; conducted a workshop for children from the Kharebeh Al Sooq refugee camp who dropped out of school; and helped a local group organize breakfasts for orphans.
