About CRP


Collateral Repair Project (CRP) supports Amman’s refugees and host communities through two vibrant community centers in Hashemi Shamali and Downtown Amman, serving a population of over 6500 families. 


Our holistic approach focuses on positive growth and change. We provide families with humanitarian assistance and offer them educational, community-building, and psychosocial activities through a wide variety of programs that prioritize skill-building and resilience. Our programs are led by volunteers and leaders from the community and abroad. We prioritize hiring individuals who are creative problem solvers, dedicated and enthusiastic, and actively take the initiative to develop our programs and move our work to the forefront of best practice. 


About the Project


The Enhancing Self-Reliance and Inclusion Prospects for Displaced-Affected Communities (Vulnerable Iraqi and Host Communities) is a one-year project in which CRP is in partnership with UNDP. Part of the Heart of Amman initiative and funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS), it focuses on community leadership and advocacy development among Iraqis and Jordanians living in neighborhoods close to downtown Amman. The project consists of four “stages”: 


  1. Identifying and training 30 community leaders in leadership and advocacy skills
  2. Working with community leaders to determine their community’s advocacy priorities, facilitate meetings with local leaders and Amman Municipality representatives, and produce an advocacy position paper.
