Over the course of 24 months, ACTED, in partnership with Luminus ShamalStart, will provide tailored support to 10 social enterprises (SEs) that provide services or products to migrants, refugees and marginalized populations in Jordan. Following the capacity assessment of the 10 SEs, building on ACTED’s global tools – the Enterprise Capacity Assessment Tool and the 3Zero assessment – and the Luminus ShamalStart incubator, the partners will provide trainings and incubation support. Through the trainings and provision of sub-grants to all 10 social enterprises, the SEs are expected to strengthen their organizational capacity, business sustainability and social performance for improved service provision to marginalized populations.
