In July and August the USAID Sustainable Cultural Heritage Through Engagement of Local Communities Project (SCHEP) held two training sessions on health and safety practices for its partners and other community members in Ghawr as Safi and Busayra.  A total of 41 people participated in these courses, which were implemented in partnership with Ammon Applied University College and the Talal Abu Ghazaleh Academy, respectively. Participants represented SCHEP’s local partner MSEs, local branches of the Department of Antiquities and Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Ghawr as Safi and Busayra Municipalities, and other local organizations. As Jordan considers reopening to limited international tourism in coming months, these courses will help the local community prepare to welcome tourists from inside and outside of Jordan, using the highest level of safety measures to protect themselves and others.
