CARE Jordan’s country director explains current hiring needs.

Economic participation of women remains lower in Jordan than in other countries in the region despite comparatively higher educational attainment — something that CARE Jordan is working to improve.

CARE’s work with women and girls — addressing gender-based violence and enabling economic empowerment — is closely tied to its emergency humanitarian work in a country that has been host to an estimated 450,000 refugees fleeing violence and insecurity in Iraq and 580,000 refugees to date from the Syria conflict.
