We took part in activities held by Jordan Interfaith Action CC at Theodor Schneller School for the less advantaged, implementing a set of exercises to promote peace through sports. Now Jadara Interfaith Action CC will be the first of its kind working in the north of Jordan. We are planning to hold several activities such as seminars, workshops, and conferences to promote interfaith and religious dialogue among local communities, whom we target because they are agents of effective change in the society.
Help families affected by militancy who are living in shelter camps and organize URI activites in our area aprt from participation in all the activities of North Zine URI and other URI activities like Zonal Meets, Asia regional Assembly, Global assembly at Mayapur, etc.
Jordan Interfaith Action CC is the dialogue unit at the Youth Spirit Center (YSC).

This CC is a group of ladies who help their community by empowering women through socio-economic and cultural development. We help women to start and build their own business, secure job opportunities, and to take initiative and be creative. This year we traveled to Petra to encourage the women and orphans to contribute in Petra Voting. We held orientation workshops about health care. We secured vocational training for 30 orphans in cooperation with the National Program for Vocational Training to increase their Job opportunities. We held training workshops for physically challenged people to teach and train them on how to be positive and active in their community and how to face their obstacles. We also organized Ramadan charity campaigns.
Our CC organized a peace conference in Azad Kashmir. The theme was terrorism and its effect in our society. All speakers condemned such acts of Jihad and passed resolution to end such acts. Our CC has distributed relief packages for IDPs of Swat, Bonair and Deer. We celebrated the International Day of Peace 2009 and held youth interfaith seminars for the empowerment of youth.
Using media and educational tools, we seek to raise awareness and expose Israelis, Palestinian, broader Arab and American audiences to non-violent civic peacebuilders from both sides of the conflict who are working together to foster understanding and trust. Through education we seek to inspire those who are not yet involved to explore and take part in the range of sectors in which conflict resolution work is happening.
We are currently re- conceptualizing and redesigning our website to include new areas of functionality, as well as a Learning Center, a Media Center, a Press Section, a revamped Homepage and What You can Do section. Our aim is to make all of our media as accessible as possible to journalists, educators and community leaders in order to broaden awareness about Israeli and Palestinian peace workers. Just Vision is also producing a timely and powerful new film, Buldrus Has a Hammer (working title): A Palestinian Community organizer unites all Palestinian Political factions along with Israelis in a Gandhian struggle to save his village, unleashing a non violent movement that is gaining ground today. Finally, new educational and training initiatives are also underway. In the U.S., we are focusing our outreach on four target cities with large concentration of Arab, Jewish and Muslim communities (Washington DC, Los Angeles, Chicago and Detroit) where we are introducing facilitators, teachers, youth organizers and interfaith leaders to our materials, including our classroom and community screening guides, website and films. We will continue to conduct outreach to ensure that Encounter Point and an accompanying Hebrew Classroom Screening Guide are incorporated into Israeli classrooms, community centers and extra-curricular youth programming. Likewise, we will continue to bring Encounter Point and accompanying Arabic Screening Guide to villages, refugee camps and community centers in Palestinian Society.
