Access to drinking water for communities in northern Jordan

Jordan Zero Exclusion
October 2019
April 2020

In Jordan, water demand increased by 40% in the northern governorates that are most heavily affected by the Syria crisis through the large-scale influx of refugees. This 6-months project aims to facilitate access to quality water for vulnerable refugee and host community populations in northern Jordan. ACTED will provide access to water for 100 000 Jordanians and Syrians living in Irbid governorate through constructing a 700-900 meters deep borehole. Moreover, ACTED will support the establishment of “female plumber clubs”, training women on hygiene, water conservation, environmental sustainability and plumbing. Thirty women will receive a plumbing certification and be equipped with skills that enhance their employment prospects and livelihood opportunities.
