This study aims at identifying the role of the charitable sector in solving the unemployment problems and causes in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, where the literature indicated that there are high percentages of unemployment in the Kingdom due to many reasons such as; the lack for private sector cooperation in implementation of the Localization Policy, the absence of consistence between the academic disciplines and the labor market needs, many of Jordanian refuse to work in some professions such as services for example and that Jordanian society is governed by a culture that prohibit Jordanian woman to work in many sectors and this leads to decline the employment opportunities available for Jordanian women. Since the charitable sector is a main contributor in the economic and social development, it may play a significant role in solving the unemployment problems. Then the study presents a set of recommendations aiming at achieving the desired investment for charitable sector funds such as communication with charities around the world regardless the religion in order to improve the efficiency of charitable sector employees, establishing charity funds and distributing such funds in different segments in the Kingdom.
