MIRRA-WSI partnership Launched its 2022/2023 Program “Water-Wise Schools” in Jordan on 1 October 2022 in Amman, Jordan.
Funded by the Water Solutions International e.V. (WSI), the program targets 80 Jordanian public education staff in 4 Governorates (Amman, Irbid, Mafraq, and North Badia) and fifty thousand relevant stakeholders.
