BORDA e.V. in Jordan

Jordan is the second most water-scarce country in the world. The Jordanian district of South Ghor is located in the southwest of the country in the administrative district of Karak; its 62,000 inhabitants are distributed among 11 settlements. Although South Ghor is the agricultural center of the country due to its location along the Jordan River, it also remains one of the poorest regions in Jordan. Access to adequate water and sanitation is not assured for the majority of people from these rural regions. In Jordan, on average, just 6% of all rural residents have such access to safe sanitation, and providing it requires special effort in the world’s second most water-scarce country.

Clean water in Jordan is pumped through the residential distribution network only once a week. Residents therefore collect the precious wet for their daily needs in water tanks. To help economically weakened communities, BORDA has set itself the task of providing 110 water tanks. In addition, Cash-4-Workers will be used, i.e. local temporary workers who are needed to carry out the work. The employment of local workers will further contribute to the development of the economically weakened communities.


Project Overview
