Program Description

Leverage your passion and skills to build a robust agricultural program that will help transform families and communities. Join our Agriculture and Hydroponics in Jordan program and see how your expertise can make a difference!

IDEAS partners with a community development organization in Jordan that seeks to cultivate transformational hope, increased capacity, and robust communities within Jordan. This organization partners with other initiatives within Jordan to reach the marginalized in society, specifically refugee and marginalized populations.

New techniques are being introduced to agricultural projects around the world, helping local leaders to maximize resources and reduce costs. IDEAS and our partner "believe that with simplification and clear communication, hydroponics can be a profitable and environmentally positive intervention even in a developing world market. We believe that it can be a feasible tool for smallholders to reduce costs, enhance productivity, and increase crop quality to command higher market prices.” 

Applicants for the Hydroponics Project Manager will help build and manage a working hydroponics farm. Hydroponics specialists and consultants will develop training curriculum and provide expertise consulting to help train local farmers. This will build the sustainability of the project, with the goal of long-term production and contribution to local communities. All applicants will need to like physical labor, long hours during the growing season, and a flexible spirit.

Applicants can spend two weeks, several months, or many years working in these positions. If you have ever wanted to leverage your skills in agriculture and hydroponics, don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to give back!
