Our main aim is to combat all forms of discrimination, trafficking in persons, torture and ill-treatment.
We promote and protect the rights of victims through offering legal aid and support, organizing and implementing customized training programs, workshops and seminars, reviewing and analyzing national legislations, developing lobbying and advocacy strategies to fulfill our objectives on local, regional and international levels through network of stakeholders, advocators, activists, and state-and non-state actors.
To achieve our mission Tamkeen is implementing the following ongoing programs:
1) Human rights standards nationalization program
2) Migrant workers program
3) Human trafficking program
An Introvert, that has a strong temptation toward trying new things, meeting new people, and finding herself a little more in different places, as I believe that each human being has his/her own authentic worth-telling story, that's why I'm joining! “Tv-Radio Broadcasting” and “Journalism” Graduate from Yarmouk University class 2012, a MEPI 2015 Alumni, worked last as a freelance Journalist with ARIJ (Arab Reporters for Investigative Journalism) before joining Tamkeen Center for Legal Aid and Human Rights as a Focal Point in Irbid for the Society Empowerment Project, which aims to legally empower Jordanian and non-Jordanian workers about their labor rights, and how they can claim them.
After finishing her MSc in Human Rights from London School of Economics (LSE) in 2016, I began working with Tamkeen Fields for Aid as a Project Coordinator. During that time, I worked on two projects focused on empowering both Syrian Refugees and the host communities in the Jordanian Labour Market through services provided by a team of Community Facilitators (CFs). I also worked on a number of research papers during that time. These include a study on the connection between Human Trafficking and Early and Forced Marriage; as well as one on Access to Justice for Migrants. My interest in Human Rights began at an early age as a Palestinian growing in the midst of the Intifada. During that turbulent time, I immersed myself in books in an attempt to find ways to help improve our future. This passion grew within me along with a believe that politics will not lead an answer but empowering the people to speak for themselves. I hope to use my knowledge and expertise in my efforts to so do.
