Improving living conditions, social cohesion and access to green infrastructure in East Amman

Nadi Al Sibaq Park is located in Al Nasser district, one of the most populated districts in Amman. Despite its dense population, before Acted's intervention the area lacked essential elements, such as seating areas and trees and required rehabilitation to become a safer and more accessible place for the local community to gather and play.

Understanding and responding to beneficiaries' needs

After analyzing needs through co-design meetings with the local community in April and May 2022, Acted prioritized rehabilitating the playground for kids, repairing the damaged floor and gates, improving lighting poles for safety, as well as creating gathering areas and green spaces by planting trees.

"As the one who conducted the co-design sessions with the local community, I found all of them looking forward to meeting their needs and desires, from girls who wished for more comfort and privacy in their own area, to kids who were happy to have bigger play areas, and women who used to sit on the floor waiting for their children to finish playing. It was wonderful to see the transformation of dreams into a tangible and lived reality." Sabaa, architect engineer of the project 

Creating work opportunities

Through the intervention, Acted created 43 short-term job opportunities to both Syrians refugees and vulnerable Jordanians. They were also supported with trainings, capacity building, post-employment counselling, and team-building events were carried out to foster social cohesion among workers.

Rehabilitation of the walls

Acted rehabilitated an old wall between the park and the Mosque by implementing new supporting walls and covering it with a mosaic done by trained workers on a side, and drawings painted by the kids’ community on the other side.

Creating new sport infrastructure and gathering areas

Acted rehabilitated an empty area next to the football field to construct a basketball field and a bazaar area with seats and tables for social gathering.

Finally, Acted conducted community mobilization activities to ensure community ownership after the end of the project and handed over the management of the park to the Great Amman Municipality.

Interviews

As the Architect Engineer, Sabaa was involved in every step of the project from its very beginning. Her role involved studying sites before engaging the local community, addressing their needs and suggestions through co-design sessions and transforming ideas into a practical and appealing design. She monitored the construction process to ensure proper implementation until Acted could finally hand over the park management to both the municipality and the community.

"One of the distinctive elements of the project is the inclusion of women and men of both Jordanian and Syrian nationalities, from different cultural backgrounds and age groups. It was beautiful to see the harmony and chemistry between everyone, we have formed wonderful friendships that extend to this day through frequent visits and calls with them, they are friendships I am proud of.”

Mariam is a cash-for-worker who took a mosaic course and contributed to rehabilitating the park through a mosaic-covered wall and tables. She later trained other girls and started a home-based business with her family’s help, selling mosaic paintings and various handicrafts. Mariam now shares and promotes her creations on social media, and is actively taking part in bazaars and exhibitions.

"Mosaic has changed my life. Since completing the course with Acted, I have been working on self-development and using my skills to raise the standard of living for me and my family. It is wonderful to visit the park and see the works that I and my colleagues, also trained during the course, contributed to decorating.”
