November 25, 2015 Last week our ambassador, Mr. Paul van den IJssel, attended the closing ceremony of a project funded through our Matra South fund, transferring certificates to the participating individuals. In this project, civil servants from Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, and Jordan are trained in public administration skills, with 10 courses in the Netherlands (phase 1) and an additional phase in one of the participating countries, in this case Jordan. This particular training dealt with social affairs and employment. Congratulations to the participants!
November 11, 2015 This morning we received the Mercy Corps team at the embassy to officially announce the extension of the running programme on enhancing peaceful communities amongst Jordanians and Syrian refugees. Intervention shall now run until 2018 and include a larger number of northern governorates. The decision to increase the Dutch support is to further promote achieving similar milestones celebrated in the first period of the programme. That intervention succeeded at refurbishing two schools in Azraq City to provide access to education for Jordanian and Syrian students, as well as constructing a new sports field and playground. In addition, in Mafraq, computer training and equipment was provided in a local youth centre. In both cities community leaders also followed a training on conflict mitigation skills. Moreover, there were five communal events to promote positive interaction between Syrian and Jordanian community members.
