Initiative summary:

Sawiyan, a recently registered initiative in Jordan, advocates for the rights of marginalised and vulnerable refugee groups.

The organisation is the only one in the country that works with Sudanese, Somali and Yemeni refugees, amassed together under the commonly used term “the others”, in comparison to the Syrian and Iraqi refugees that fled to the country. EED will provide start up support to this timely, gap-filling initiative.
