Sakeena is a non-governmental, charitable, organization for orphans in Jordan .
Our Vision is to empower all orphans to enjoy life as an equal member of society .
Orphans, who are deprived from family ties in care centers or who have graduated from these centers, face various problems in Jordanian society. Most orphans are subject to severe physical and psychological abuse in addition to being neglected. As a result the majority of the graduates of these care centers are illiterate at the age of eighteen and suffer from various psychological problems for various reasons.
The problem does not stop at the individual level, however. While the state guarantees housing and care for orphans until the age of eighteen, care leavers are left to their own devices after they become ‘adults’.
