Who we are
Tamkeen for Legal Aid and Human Rights is an independent Jordanian non-governmental civil society organization established in 2007 specialized in labor, migration and combating human trafficking.
Tamkeen believes in the principles of equality, justice and human rights enshrined in international law, and adopts in its work a human rights-based approach that combines empowering rights holders and stakeholders and influencing duty bearers in order to reach durable solutions that contribute to the promotion and protection of human rights for Jordanian workers, migrants and refugees, and the rights of victims Trafficking in Human Beings.
What we do
Tamkeen supports the rights and labor movements of Jordanian workers, migrants, and refugees, and works to combat forced labor through networks of activists and actors who are dedicated to advocating and defending the rights of marginalized groups.
Additionally, we provide legal services and consultations, human rights education, advocacy, training programs, research and analytical studies, media campaigns and awareness raising activities. We work at continuously developing specialized programs that support efforts to promote human rights and improve legal services, as well as finding and identifying effective solutions for achieving real change for the rights of migrants, victims of human trafficking and forced labour.
Furthermore, we help raise awareness regarding human rights violations committed against Jordanian workers, migrants, refugees, and victims of human trafficking. This is achieved through monitoring and documenting the multiple aspects of exploitation and violations to which they are exposed, enhancing their knowledge of prevention, protection, and legal assistance mechanisms, and striving to enhance the capabilities of workers to enter the labor market.
Where we Work
We operate in all governorates of the Kingdom of Jordan and we have three main offices in Amman, Irbid, and Mafraq.
