Nakhweh is a platform that seeks to enhance the volunteerism and social entrepreneurship culture in the Arab world by serving those committed to change from youth, startups, social enterprises and nonprofit organizations.

The initiative offers a variety of services that take the advantage of social media to facilitate and connect volunteers to opportunities, share inspiring work and stories from the social scene in Arabia, and provide a platform to build the next generation of social entrepreneurs and maximize the outreach of existing ones.

While most of the volunteers, entrepreneurs and NGOs now registered on the Nakhweh website are Jordanian, the website has the potential to serve the whole Arab region. Be sure to visit Nakhweh at
