Support to livelihoods through cultural heritage development

Jordan Humanitarian Action
October 2022
February 2023

Through the proposed project, ACTED will contribute to improving the livelihoods of vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees in Irbid governorate while enhancing access to tourism in the area and thus creating economic opportunities in the longer-run. ACTED will manage and oversee approximatively 375 beneficiaries (297 unskilled, 62 semi-skilled, 11 junior technicians and 5 senior technicians) into labour-intensive work to rehabilitate and maintain three heritage sites – Pella (site 1) and Beit Eidis (site 2).
