CRP Receives Support from the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives

CRP is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a grant from the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) from the Embassy of Canada in Jordan and Global Affairs Canada.

This funding will support CRP Gender-Based Violence Awareness and Prevention (GBVAP) activities to address violence, harassment, and discrimination in the local community.

CFLI provides funding for small-scale projects on gender equality, human rights, democracy, peace, climate action, and economic growth. Mainly planned and implemented by local civil society groups, these projects are crucial to the local communities’ well-being.

CRP’s GBVAP seminars are led by trained community leaders who work with the participants to raise awareness and encourage a change in individuals and in our community. With this award, CRP will be able to invite at least sixty people from the communities we serve in Amman into four training seminar events over the next six months. In this challenging time of the Covid-19 pandemic, CRP will begin the first training this fall with an on-line class, and we look forward to being able to offer the other three seminars later in the winter using a mix of both in-person and remote learning.

CRP, established in 2006, is a grassroots organization in Amman, Jordan providing needed assistance to refugees. CRP runs two community centers. If you are interested in being a donor, please contact [email protected]. CRP greatly appreciates your support for local refugees.
