The Adult Education for Development Project “AEforD,” one of DVV International key projects in Jordan, supports three Community Development Centers “CDCs” of the Ministry of Social Development (MoSD) to become exemplary community development centers that offer adult education, training and income generation opportunities relevant for the labor-market and community needs. Therefore, AEforD works on building the capacities of select CDCs in Jordan based on key indicators developed by a team of experts and practitioners from different organizations and institutions working in the field of adult education and community development in Jordan. The indicators represent the key services and programs those centers should be offering, in addition to the internal system, structure and mechanisms based on which those centers should function. Since 2014, DVV International has been working on realizing those indicators, hand in hand with three CDCs and the MoSD. The CDCs are located in Jdetta - Irbid, Eira&Yarqa - Salt and Muhay - Kerak. DVV International has supported these CDCs in developing exemplary programs on both economic and social levels, which are strengthening their roles in the community as model and focal development centers.
