This 39 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 22.25 kilometers long stormwater network in Districts 1, 10,2,3,4, 7, 11 and 12 with the support of 2,377 Syrian refugees who will be provided with income-generating opportunities through the cash for work scheme. Approximately 80,046 individuals will benefit from improved sanitation, hygiene and living standards in Districts 1, 10, 2, 3, 4, 7, 11 and 12. Moreover, the project will benefit 1,772 individuals and their families (approximately 13,000 individuals) with increased access to income.
