Since opening in 2006, over six thousand people have been served by World Associates and our programs.  Our goal remains empowerment of the local long term resident. We long to see the people of Aqaba take advantage of the resources and changes happening in the free economic zone they call home. World Associates values sustainability and local empowerment. We do not operate on grant cycles, opening and closing programming according to the winning of bids, but build self-sustainable programs and communities. In some of our programs participants pay tuition fees that cover expenses. Other programming that we develop hits sustainability and is handed off to local NGOs. In 2013, after 6 years under the leadership of WA, our mobile veterinary clinic was fully handed over to a Jordanian NGO. In 2015, after four years of operation, twelve Souk by the Sea vendors formed an association and were given full control and leadership of the street market!


World Associates has launched programs with the help of generous donations from US AID, SIDA and the US Embassy.  We have benefited from corporate donations from companies such as Pepsi, General Electric, the Aqaba Development Corporation, Ayla Aviation Academy and many others.  In addition, individuals have made donations to World Associates including former President Jimmy Carter.  If you would like to make a tax deductible gift to help World Associates cover operating expenses and the launching of new programming please utilize the secure link below. Thank you for joining us financially as we look empower the people of Aqaba.  If you have any questions please contact us today.
