The Jordan River for Child Safety Program (JRCSP) has been working relentlessly since 1997 to secure children’s rights and safety and enhance positive child-rearing practices. JRCSP strives to strengthen positive healthy interactions between family members, particularly with regard to nurturing children within this basic building-block of society.
The prevention and intervention services provided by JRCSP are unique in terms of their holistic and integrated approach to tackling child abuse. In addition to provision of services, the program acts as a “facilitator of change” and capacity builder at the national level.
Our prevention efforts exist at two levels – primary and secondary. Work at the primary level began through a national campaign to raise the level of awareness in society on child abuse, and address the social denial associated with this issue in a culturally sensitive manner. At the secondary level, the Foundation established the Queen Rania Family and Child Center (QRFCC) to support and promote the healthy development of children and families, and enhance the capacities of professionals and institutions in the field of child safety.
The intervention component of the Jordan River Child Safety Program includes the following 4 main services: Dar Al Aman, 110 FC, Psychosocial Services for Women and Psychosocial Services for Children.
