ACCOMPLISHED VIDEOGRAPHER REQUIRED
The NRC Information, Counseling and Legal Assistance (ICLA) programme was established in Jordan in 2013 in order to provide casework and legal assistance to refugees in Jordan. The ICLA programme provides refugee families with, amongst other things, information and counselling in relation to their rights to registration, legal and civil documentation, housing, and access to essential services as part of a holistic casework/social work approach to beneficiary needs.
NRC’s ICLA services began in 2013 in Irbid where services were focused on Housing Land and Property Rights and tied to NRC’s shelter beneficiaries. Since then ICLA services have expanded throughout the country.
Traditionally legal awareness sessions have been provided through a form of interactive presentation to a group of beneficiaries followed by individual counselling sessions with those who ask for specific advice on ICLA thematic areas. NRC are now moving to complement these services through other alternative methods of legal awareness including through video. At the end of 2015 NRC Jordan created the first video highlighting the problems relating to civil documentation called Registering Rights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxeR3pmCxpc.
In 2017, NRC ICLA piloted use of the theatre modality in Mafraq to highlight social issues related to the areas of ICLA intervention. This modality will be piloted in all geo-locations where NRC are present during the last half of 2017.
