Considering the high number of vulnerable Syrian women and youth in Jordan with limited access to information and the absence of a communication platform for these groups, and the lack of proper information dissemination about humanitarian services in Jordan, UNESCO Office in Amman, implements a project targeting the above mentioned groups in Irbid, Mafraq, Zarqa and Amman governorates. The project is aimed at disseminating lifesaving information about available services, and providing counselling through a radio programme called Sa'a Suryia (the Syrian Hour) on Yarmouk FM and Farah al Nas Radio.
The third season (8.5 of programming) has started in January 2014, with a training on humanitarian reporting and radio techniques to start in February, followed by the airing of the programmes on Farah Al Nas radio and Yarmouk FM in the same month.
