Celebrate multicultural Jordan by learning soap-making and crochet, helping their newest residents and women entrepreneurs. Many women that came from Syria are widowed or had to leave their husbands behind. They arrived in Jordan as the sole breadwinners for their families. Only 7% of Syrian women in Jordan are employed. Syrian Jasmine House seeks to address that by providing jobs and income.

They employ 70 women – the majority are Syrian but group also includes Iraqi and Palestinian. They have a goal of increasing the women they work with to 200 in 2018. They have trained more than 1000 women on the art of handicrafts.
