Our education programme was launched in Zaatari camp in 2013, and in Azraq camp in 2014. We offer a range of educational and recreational activities and psychosocial support through our learning centres. We also support programmes that engage the community to help adolescent refugees and parents participate in projects within their community, like a cooking club, sewing club and recycling.
Additionally, the programme provides remedial activities for children to stay in school, as well as protective social and emotional support for all children in camps to engage in activities more effectively. We also run summer schools in both camps and host communities, inside formal schools.
Since the beginning of the education projects in the camps, around 12,000 Syrian school-aged refugee children have been supported by our teams in dedicated learning centres. Our learning centres are located in both Azraq and Zaatari refugee camps and are funded by UNICEF and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA).
