About our organization:
We believe in women empowering themselves through language and technology. Based at the Hopes-Sitti Women’s Center and with the support of Hopes for Women in Education, a nonprofit registered in Canada in Jordan, we coordinate and support online language-exchange sessions between Palestinian refugee women learning English and young women learning Arabic in universities across the U.S., Canada, & Europe. We also provide English classes and personal and professional development workshops for women in the camp, taught by expatriate volunteers. With funding from GIZ's FASPAR program, we will now be launching an E-Tutoring program where women who have completed our language exchange program will be able to be trained on how to tutor Arabic to non-native learners and begin tutoring students from the U.S., Canada, and Europe. The Tutor Training Consultant will be instrumental to the implementation of this project and work closely with the project manager and the women training to become tutors.
