As with any other country in the world with a significant population of overseas Filipinos, a healthy number of Filipino organizations in Jordan have brought together, despite the diversity and multiplicity of their backgrounds, individuals who have found a common cause or shared passion. There are at present 21 organizations with their own sets of officers and with memberships that run from a dozen to a couple of hundred. Recognizing the strength that comes from unity, these different organizations came together and established the Federation of Filipino Organizations in Jordan (FilOrg-Jordan), which in the last couple of years has served as the representation of the Filipino community in Jordan.
