This 6-month project aims to improve the sanitation, hygiene and living standards of refugees in Za’atari camp by constructing a stormwater drainage network through employment-intensive measures. The intervention will contribute to continuous access to and within Za’atari camp through the prevention of flooding during winter months. As such, ACTED will construct a 2.6 kilometers long stormwater network in District 10 with the support of 271 Syrian refugees who will be provided with income-generating opportunities through the cash for work scheme. Approximately 5,558 individuals will benefit from improved sanitation, hygiene and living standards in District 10. Moreover, the project will benefit 271 individuals and their families (approximately 1,355 individuals) with increased access to income.
