Homebound Girls in Jordan


Homebound Girls in Jordan is a qualitative study conducted by the Information and Research Center - King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) in collaboration with Save the Children International. The research was  published in 2013.  The purpose of this research was twofold: 1. to explore the phenomenon of homebound girls in Jordan and 2. to understand the reasons that led to their confinement. By shedding light on and investigating this phenomenon, the second purpose of this research was to identify possible interventions to allow these girls' access to education and strengthen their social development.
