Training of Imams and Wa’ethat

The project’s main objective is to enhance leadership capacity of (60) Imams and Wa’ethat in Jordan by offering training courses based on the training manual of the ‘Amman Message’ that was produced in 2014 in collaboration with the Ministry of Awqaf and Religious Affairs. It will focus on curbing forms of religious violence, protection of human rights, countering the root causes of extremism, the attainment of good governance and enhancing universal values and encouraging respect for differences. The project started in July 2016 and will end in March 2017; it is funded by the Mennonite Central Committee.
