Dr. Zayed Hammad Ghaith

In the presence of Yarmouk University, the final conference of the project (RAISD) “Reform of interests and inclusion strategies for clearly vulnerable persons among the forcibly displaced persons” concluded with the participation of Complutense University in Madrid, University of Helsinki in Finland, Lebanese International University of Lebanon, Hungarian Association of Migrants in Hungary and Anatolia University in Turkey and the Consortium of Mediterranean Universities in Italy and Organizations, the Italian CISE Organization.
The researchers and experts in the project sought to reach the most vulnerable groups in the countries in which the project was implemented to develop innovative and sustainable solutions to enable the most vulnerable people to participate in the development of strategies and help with social integration and participation in decision-making, as the most vulnerable groups clearly differed from one country to another.
The Yarmouk University team offered its various programs to help with psychological and social support through psychological, family, health, economic and legal empowerment, through training and dialogue programs, from which the training materials were provided by a court of experts.
The general idea of ​​integrating the least vulnerable groups in Jordan revolves around the provision of psychological and social support to refugees in a way that contributes to increasing the knowledge aspect, raising awareness and exchanging knowledge according to systematic policies; A platform has been created to implement these goals to the benefit of the target audience.
The implementation of the project took almost three years, each country began to see the needs of the most vulnerable groups, and there was a clear difference between countries to define who is the most vulnerable.
In Finland, the target group was young asylum seekers as well as the development of childcare services in asylum centers for families living there.
In Hungary, the aim was to launch a route monitoring toolkit for refugee social workers to identify and assess their vulnerability context.
In Italy, the real experience included “whatever you can learn” for women who were forcibly displaced living in extremely vulnerable situations or exposed to extremely vulnerable situations and victims of human trafficking who currently live in Sicily, and who are originally from Africa -land came.
In Jordan, the goal was to provide psychological support to refugees along with online training on financial, legal and health awareness.
In Lebanon, promoting health awareness among Syrian refugees living in camps in case of emergency “Covid 19”; It was necessary to combine simple awareness activities with a more strategic approach through exercises focused on social and emotional well-being.
Spain has training and counseling programs for self-employment and professional work for sub-Saharan African women seeking international protection, whose application has been accepted, rejected or in many cases still pending.
In Turkey, the focus is on monitoring the social inclusion of vulnerable refugee activists through a series of workshops to improve capacity and awareness of various stakeholders.
The practical benefits of this project will provide vast knowledge needed by refugees in their countries. In Jordan, for example, the project offers an integrated practical knowledge chain in economic, legal, psychological, family and health empowerment, which is as follows:
In the economic aspect, the program helped to empower many families, as some of those families established small projects that were sufficient to meet their daily needs and rely on themselves and alleviate the burden on organizations that also provide assistance, and above all, financial adequacy, and it is a qualitative leap in independence and provides livelihood within the capabilities and resources that are scarce and modest in the state of the host community.
From a legal point of view, there was a huge gap in the knowledge of most of the targets of their legal rights and obligations, especially labor, as well as leases and eviction contracts, the ways in which landlords deal with tenants, and the legal and legal rights in the case of marriage, divorce, maintenance, as well as the marriage of those under 18 years of age, in addition to the systematic treatment of courts’ institutional antagonism between the host community and the guests; Most of them were not aware of this methodology and justice in the judiciary.
As far as the family aspect is concerned, many aspects are benefited, including positive education and mechanisms for dealing with children of all ages and protection mechanisms for them for the sake of family stability and a sense of family assurance dominated by love and tenderness. .
In the psychological aspect, which is the backbone of the stability of the family or the person in itself, the women are trained in psychological resilience, providing psychological support, whether individually or in groups, and giving special exercises for psychological comfort and coexistence with the host community.
And lastly, the health aspect, which focuses on educating women about taking care of themselves and establishing adequate awareness of reproductive health.
All the previous axes complement each other for the sake of a happy, stable family that is empowered in most aspects of a decent life.
