Training is given to multipliers so that they can provide regular and independent assistance to self-help groups.

In Jordan, a new project has been launched with the aim of improving psychosocial support for refugees and the local population in host communities. All measures are designed and implemented in a gender-differentiated manner as men and women have had different experiences of violence and women in particular have, to a large extent, been the victims of sexual violence within the context of the crisis in Syria.
