For people living in the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan there are few legally accessible work opportunities in and outside the camp. The Cash for Work activities currently being carried out in Za’atari provides income, increases household wealth, teaches skills and improves well-being.

But how effective is the intervention?

As part of our Real Geek Series, Franziska and Simone speak to Nour and Teshome at Oxfam Jordan. They discuss and share the evidence and learning from the impact evaluation of the Cash for Work interventions, and consider how the findings can influence change.

This episode will delve into how the project was implemented, how it was evaluated, the evaluation findings and what recommendations came out of it.
