A belated few images from a fascinating week spent in Jordan in November last year documenting the British Council’s Active Citizens programme.

We visited some great projects; Jordan’s Deaf Hub, where the country’s neglected deaf population are finally getting the support and training they deserve to be fully integrated members of society.

DAY_3-8

The Jordanian National Commission for Women are training, educating and supporting young girls in rural areas to claim their rights and access employment.

And the young people of the Princess Basma Youth Resource Centre are producing their own photography and media to challenge those who abuse power, scrutinise those in authority, and raise awareness about issues that affect young people.

Finally, the beautiful Wadi Mujib Gorge.
