#ProjectJofeh What is it & how you could GET INVOLVED
Jofeh Community Rehabilitation Center “Beit Saleem” is a center providing development services for disadvantaged people?in the area of Jofeh in the Shuneh district, 5km north of the Dead Sea, through the encouragement?and training of people to take action and volunteer in helping & enabling persons with disabilities for inclusion and participation in their families and societies through free-of-charge vocational training and community-based rehabilitation & employment programs & workshops?designed to help these people (including??visually, hearing, physically & mobility impaired individuals in addition to people with intellectual impairments and mental illness) to incorporate into the society around them and to contribute as productive and self-reliant individuals.
This is where Project Jofeh comes in. Project Jofeh was started by my friend Lara (Sleepless in Amman) & her friend?Nadeen?to support the “Beit Saleem” project by organizing a “community” to support the center by raising toys, food and clothes for the community through several fundraising activities & by getting more people involved in understanding the “Handicapable”, as they put it.
This Saturday a team from Project Jofeh will be heading to the center to be able to meet and interact with the people benefiting from the center & to officially kickstart the project.
