The Dairy Products project promotes income and social solidarity for unemployed young people, poor families and Syrian refugees” and is run by the Shihan Charity Association (SCA), one of the two sub-grantees of MoreThanAJob in Jordan.

The project aims to help make refugees economic actors in their communities and agents of their own integration in Jordan, while also contributing to the development of the area where they live by generating employment and supporting the creation of small businesses.

The project has been designed to promote economic and social development in 4 areas in south of Jordan: Karak, Tafila, Ma’an, and Shobak.

It is divided into 3 phases. The first phase which lasted for 45 days, provided 58 persons with several training courses on how to make products out of the sheep’s milk. The trainings focused on increasing production, manufacturing and service activities, supporting to contribute to the development of small enterprises that create employment and wealth for refugees and the local community.
