Community Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaign in Kufr Khall Village- north Jordan
Community Livelihood and Environmental Awareness Campaign in Kufr Khall Village- north Jordan
The project is part of a 3-project cluster that will be implemented by women cooperatives in three villages in the north of the country. The projects aim to contribute to controlling land degradation and soil erosion, improving productivity of agricultural land and preserving environmental resources.
Project activities include the introduction of soil conservation measures, water harvesting, using effective drip irrigation techniques, bee keeping, medicinal herb planting and processing and installation of solar cells for water heating. It is hoped that these projects would constitute models that encourage neighboring communities to adopt similar activities to serve their needs in line with their environmental and socio-economic contexts. The projects include an element of awareness raising for the farmers and local community members in the field of environmental issues affecting their areas and projects. They will also include an element of capacity building of implementing cooperatives, which will enable them to provide support to their local communities. The above cooperatives will use a revolving loan system in supporting their various activities so they can continue providing support to more projects that serve their local communities

Project Characteristics and Results
Capacity - Building Component
A special capacity building component will be implemented through the project, involving training of CBO and community members on the various project activities, environmental issues and project administrative and financial management issues. Several activities in this respect have already been implemented through technical assistant's involvement with the CBO.
Project sustainability
As the cooperative will be using the revolving fund approach, repayments of loans will be used to fund new activities and new Income Generating Activities (IGA’s). The applied system is guaranteeing sustainability. It is assumed that the beneficiaries will realize the positive impacts on the quality of their lives, which will encourage them to maintain the achievements of the project. It is expected that, the cooperative’s success will enable them for future funding from additional sources if necessary. Kufr Khall Women Cooperative will also get support from the Poverty Alleviation through Community Development (PACD) Project in the form of training in different subjects and especially in leadership management skills, financial controlling, and needed technical assistance over several years until being able to manage the cooperative fully by themselves.
