MO7AKA provides young people with the opportunity to become more understanding of others’ lives through eye-opening experiences and discussion on sensitive social, political and gender issues. Through MO7AKA, young Jordanians are able to enhance their critical thinking and empathy skills.
Mo7aka involves special training workshops where young people are exposed to a variety of role-play exercises closely related to human rights issues, gender rights, and cultural taboos. Short retreats to places like the Dana Reserve and Wadi Rum provide a fun but intensive training experience for participants.
We believe that human rights issues are important now than ever in Jordanian society. MO7AKA educates Jordanian youth on human rights, especially women’s rights issues in Jordan.
MO7AKA workshops are held in remote areas such as nature reserves and archeological sites in order to distance participants from distractions. Participants become completely engaged in role-playing exercises and learn more about the issues at hand. In one role-play, men and women switch roles, giving them the experience of living in one another’s shoes.
