ZENID was established in 1994 by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund
for Human Development (JOHUD). At the time, the aim of ZENID was
to act as a training provider in the field of social development
to build the capacities of JOHUDís Community Development Centres.
However, ZENIDís range of programs and services expanded considerably,
in response to a growing demand to increase the knowledge and
skills of those involved in development work, both at the local
and regional levels.
Today, ZENID provides support and capacity building for a variety
of organisations and individuals, ranging from NGOís, voluntary
groups to governmental agencies, students and youth groups to
womenís organisations and development practitioners. Through training,
research, up-to-date techniques and consultations, ZENID is providing
those involved in development with the tools, information and
knowledge required to strengthen the development process.
