LWF community centers certified to rehabilitate young offenders
(LWI) - LWF in Jordan supports the rehabilitation of young delinquents: The LWF community centers recently received government approval to offer community service to children convicted for minor offenses. Community service instead of detention is still relatively new in Jordan. In this way, the LWF supports the rehabilitation of the young people.
In September 2022, LWF Jordan's "Aman" community centers in the Irbid and Zarqa governorates received accreditation from the Ministry of Social Development as establishments offering community service opportunities to children convicted of minor offences. LWF Jordan has also adopted a holistic approach to managing the cases of young people who have been referred to the centers.
