Through Her Seed Grant Project, Rawan Saad Trained Adolescent Girls, Including Syrian Refugees, in Economic Empowerment

share

Rawan Saad received a $5,000 seed grant from Women Deliver — made possible by Johnson & Johnson — to implement “My Mirror,” a seed grant project in a Al Zarqa governorate, Jordan, that provided young girls, including Syrian refugees residing in Jordan, with entrepreneurial skills, financial skills, and knowledge of women’s health issues and civil rights that enables them to feel empowered and self-confident. Through her project, Rawan recruited five mentors to work with the adolescent girls and led four focus groups with community members to discuss the need to engage with young girls on their health and empowerment. She also conducted trainings with 37 adolescent girls, ages 14-15, equipping them with reproductive health information, knowledge and awareness of social issues affecting young girls (including child marriage), and an introduction to social entrepreneurship as a career path and a way to improve their socioeconomic conditions.
