The “Support to Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and De-institutionalisation with CSOs” Project implemented by Expertise France comes within the framework of the EU-funded Programme “Support to Social Protection in Jordan” launched in partnership with the Ministry of Social Development (MoSD).
The overall objective of the Programme is to support social sector reforms and the development of an equitable and inclusive society in Jordan through the improvement and modernisation of the quality and performance of the social protection system. The specific objectives of the Project are:
- to strengthen the capacities and the roles of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) as actors in the development, service-delivery, monitoring and evaluation of social protection and to support their participation in quality social services for target beneficiaries
- to support the Deinstitutionalisation (De-I) reform for People with Disabilities with CSOs
The Grant Scheme will support MoSD in fulfilling its mandate and the implementation of the National Social Protection Strategy. In line with the Project objectives, the Grant Scheme will reinforce the relationship that the Ministry and other Public Institutions have with CSOs by providing a comprehensive tool to consolidate a new approach with a focus on:
- promoting a culture of partnership among CSOs / CBOs and other not-for-profit organisations, to develop new models of service delivery
- building on examples of good practice
- developing innovative and cooperative practices
- improving monitoring and evaluation and increasing sustainability of services and activities.
