    My name is Maher, a long time committed to journalism and human rights, most important technology and communication. Traveled to many countries, and have friends from all walk of life. a friend of mine informed me about work away. I am very excited to try it out, and i am very confident of achieving so much, because we live this life together with passion and enthusiasm.
    I am open to a new ideas, and creative actions. This 3 acre farm land is located in the northern side of Jordan, between the city of Irbid and the city of Jerash, two miles away from the main street.
    We would like for our volunteers to be immersed in our lives as much as possible. You can go with us wherever we go. We love to have people in our farm, we love to cook, play games and spend time outside. We look forward to meeting you.

    Volunteers will live in the farm, they will have three meals a day and we will take them for trips in many areas in Amman.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volenteers could benefits from multiple angels:
    1- Cultural aspects:Jerash is a city in Jordan, north of the capital Amman. Inhabited since the Bronze Age, it’s known for the ruins of the walled Greco-Roman settlement of Gerasa just outside the modern city. These include the 2nd-century Hadrian’s Arch, the Corinthian columns of the Temple of Artemis and the huge Forum’s oval colonnade. The Jerash Archaeological Museum displays artifacts excavated from the site.
    Petra: is a famous archaeological site in Jordan's southwestern desert. Dating to around 300 B.C., it was the capital of the Nabatean Kingdom. Accessed via a narrow canyon called Al Siq, it contains tombs and temples carved into pink sandstone cliffs, earning its nickname, the "Rose City." Perhaps its most famous structure is Al Khazneh, a temple with an ornate, Greek-style facade.
    The Dead Sea: bordering Israel, the West Bank and Jordan – is a salt lake whose banks are more than 400m below sea level, the lowest point on dry land. Its famously hypersaline water makes floating easy, and its mineral-rich black mud is used for therapeutic and cosmetic treatments at area resorts. The surrounding desert offers many oases and historic sites.
    3- Arabic language: volunteers will have the opportunity to communicate with local people, and they will have the ability to learn the Arabic language.
