Sponsor a Child with the Jordan River Foundation
In 1997, the Jordan River Children Program (JRCP) was launched as a result of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah's relentless efforts to place the welfare of children at the forefront of national policy agendas. Her Majesty's conviction that the well-being of future generations should be of primary concern to Jordanian society has been the driving force behind this key initiative.
Dar Al Aman, the first and only therapeutic center for child victims of maltreatment in Jordan was established in the year 2000.
Operating under the Jordan River Foundation’s Child Safety Program, Dar Al Aman serves abused children from infancy to early adolescence (birth-12 years old). The therapeutic plans it offers could range from 3 months to 5 years depending on the type, severity and complexity of the case. To date, the Foundation has directly reached 19,385 individuals through its rehabilitation and prevention activities.
The primary task of Dar Al-Aman is to provide an education and rehabilitative treatment program which will enable children to overcome the impairments and negative feelings caused by the abuse, restore their self-worth and value, enhance their competencies and fulfill their potential. The rehabilitation plan is conducted through a multidisciplinary team consisting of a psychologist, social worker, teacher, nurse and a caregiver attending holistically to the developmental needs of each child.
The JRCP, whose mission is to respect and support families in their task of nurturing children, provides a broad umbrella for the Child Safety Program (CSP). The CSP is designed to address intervention, prevention and awareness needs in Jordan with the objective of enhancing positive child-rearing practices to protect children, as well as to identify, confront and eliminate various forms of abuse through awareness, prevention and rehabilitation activities. The program also strives to strengthen positive family interactions between members, particularly with regard to nurturing children within this basic building-block of society.
