EED will enable an anchored Jordanian organisation to continue its support to teachers currently engaged in the “We stand with teachers” campaign.
This is a fully women-led project calling for the Jordanian authorities to extend equal pay and social security assurances to Jordanian female teachers working in the private sector. In a country context where civil society mobilisation efforts are limited, this campaign represents a successful experience because of its ability to engage actively with private school teachers and raise their voices both at the popular and at the decision-making level. The initiative foresees both advocacy and training activities targeting two teachers groups in Amman and Zarqa governorates.
