Jordan-School rehabilitation for Syrian refugee children and Jordanian students

Progetto concluso

32’000 Syrian refugee students are currently enrolled in Jordanian public schools according to UNICEF. With the conflict in Syria and the influx of refugees the number of students is expected to rise. The already overstretched Ministry of Education (MoE) is struggling to accommodate more students in the schools. As a burden sharing with Jordan, SDC is supporting non-structural rehabilitation works of 11 public schools in Amman area and the Northern governorates where Syrian refugee students are also enrolled. The project will be supplemented with a component on awareness campaign and a further component in which SDC supports the MoE with the integration of an IT management program.
