Eradicating Hunger Project

Eradicating Hunger in Jordan Project

Eradicating Hunger in Jordan Project was initiated as part of Tkiyet Um Ali’s board of

directors’ vision to reach all households living in extreme poverty. An ambitious plan was set in place aiming to expand Tkiyet Um Ali’s operations to provide 20,000 extremely poor households with their daily food intake, and improve their living conditions as a step towards a “Hunger-Free Jordan by 2015”.

Project Goals:

  • To accurately identify households living in extreme poverty according to a scientific methodology that covers all areas across the kingdom, focusing on the poorest areas, where the rate of food insecurity is high.

  • To channel sustainable food aid to those households according to Tkiyet Um Ali’s eligibility standards and criteria.

  • To build a comprehensive, reliable, and updated database on households assessed by Tkiyet Um Ali.

  • To produce a digital map that includes beneficiary households by geographic distribution and characteristics.


Project Implementation Mechanism

  • Partnership agreements with institutions and organisations signed in order to reach out to households living below extreme poverty line. Accordingly, by the end of 2014, 187 charitable organisations were accredited and 66,800 applications for household endorsement were received through these community based organisations.

  • 24 field teams visited 54,102 households during 2013-2014 to evaluate and assess status of applicant households.

  • Global Positioning Systems (GPS) coordinates used to register the location of assessed households in order to connect them directly with the information available in the database.

Project Achievements

  • Assessment and evaluation of 54,102 households throughout the Kingdom by fully dedicated TUA field teams during 2013-2014.

  • Endorsement of 18,300 households and provision of monthly Sustainable Food Aid through the food parcels programme.

  • Endorsement of households in 89 provinces and districts throughout the Kingdom.

  • Accreditation of 187 partner Community Based Organisation.

  • Thus all the goals set in the implementation plan of the project were completed.
