Outcomes of your support

The Jordan Valley Links project (JVL) was created to give new and struggling businesspeople in the Jordan Valley a chance.

Thanks to you, they are achieving success!


Ons was no stranger to entrepreneurship when she was first introduced to the Jordan Valley Links project in 2018. Though she was a zealous businesswoman, her previous ventures proved unsuccessful due to a lack of access to training and the right support mechanisms.

With support through JVL, Ons began a new venture, a local grocery store. The nearest supermarket to Ons’ village of North Shouneh is miles away and residents often spent nearly as much money on transport to get there as they did on the groceries themselves.

Today Ons’ grocery store is a staple in her community. Thanks to you.
