Abstract

The study aimed to identify the awareness of workers in charitable organizations of the concept of sustainable development in Ma’an Governorate, and to reveal the sources that shape their awareness about the dimensions of sustainable development and the obstacles they face in dealing with sustainable development issues. The study adopted the descriptive analytical approach, where a questionnaire was constructed to collect data. It was applied to (401) volunteers (members of administrative bodies) from the original research community within charitable associations in Ma'an Governorate. The study found that issues related to education, skills development, individual capabilities, and training received a high score from the workers’ perspective while the score was average for issues related to environment and energy. The results also showed that traditional and modern media are important sources of workers’ awareness, with an arithmetical mean (4.15) and a high degree. Similarly, the degree of worker's awareness of the sustainable development activities and programs carried out by charitable societies, specifically in aspects related to the societies’ ability to deal with issues of poverty, unemployment, and women’s empowerment, was also average. Regarding obstacles, the weak funding needed to implement programs and activities and the lack of studies on sustainable development had a high arithmetic mean of (3.40). Therefore, the researcher recommended building knowledge of various sources of financing the implementation of sustainable development programs and projects.
