This component of the action includes the implementation of municipal projects aimed at strengthening the access to basic services and income generating opportunities for host communities and Syrian refugees through labour-intensive infrastructure works. The workers assigned to each rehabilitation/public work project are selected among the most vulnerable groups, where possible including women and people with disabilities. The interventions are identified through Calls for Proposals dedicated to the local authorities specifying the selection criteria and the priority sectors to be addressed (please check the Open Calls for Proposals). For each Call, an information session is held in order to inform the representatives of the local authorities about the objectives, sectors of intervention and submission procedures. A Steering Committee, composed by AICS, AFD, EU, MoPIC, MoMA, MoH and MoSD, selects the projects and supervises the correct implementation of the activities.

Capacity building of local authorities

The training focuses on operational issues such as the drafting of a Project Proposal; International procurement procedures and standards; community participation in strategic planning; management and monitoring tools etc.

The project led by Terre des Hommes Lausanne aims to protect boys and girls against violence, exploitation, abuse and negligence by giving them access to quality child protection services. The project is implemented in Lebanon (Beirut and Beqaa) and in Jordan (in the Governorates of Irbid, Jerash and Mafraq). It benefits Lebanese, Jordanian and syrian refugees in the countries of operation.

In Jordan, the project will support 3,800 vulnerable children from Syrian refugee and host communities by implementing a strategy based on a three-pronged approach:

  • Response to the most dire child protection needs of the refugee and host communities, through addressing child protection violations by case management and referral to specialized services
  • Prevention of the child protection risks by reducing vulnerabilities through access to information, structured PSS and community based child protection
  • Capacity building of Tdh local partners and communities, where national child protection system are reinforced by trainings.


This approach focuses on country-specific issues, as child protection needs are different depending on the context. While mainstreaming GBV into its intervention, Tdh and its partners will work with the most vulnerable children as they are the main victims of the conflict. A specific focus will be put on negative coping mechanisms developed by the families, such as child labor and early marriage, in order to sensitize the families on these issues and try to find with them alternative solutions to these mechanisms.

In this framework, the project overall objective is that vulnerable boys and girls from Syrian refugees and host communities are protected from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect through equitable access to quality child protection services.

Thanks to this project, the children will have a better access to psychosocial support and protection services, which will contribute to improve their well-being and their social resilience.


Also, the child protection mechanisms will be strengthened by raising the awareness of the immediate family and community circle.

Overall, the project will contribute to reducing community tensions, by ensuring equitable access to protection services and strengthening the dialogue between communities, and by strengthening the capacities of 8 Jordanian community-based organizations.
