The New School Campus in the Village of Azraq, Jordan is the Second Project of the (100 Classrooms for Refugee Children in the Middle East) Program

EAHR, The Syrian Fund, Helping Refugee Jordan will assist the Jordanian NGO, Nashmiyat Al-Badiyah, in providing access to safe and inclusive education environments to Syrian refugee children and youth in Azraq Village, Jordan. By means of sustainable, low-cost building techniques and participatory approaches we will construct: 5 regular classrooms, 1 IT centre, 1 library/literacy centre, 2 multipurpose classrooms, 1 kitchen, 2 toilet blocks, solar paneled electricity and sport facilities. Furthermore, we will train 10 teachers in applied-science education and capacity building 25 community members in sustainable building methods and construction leadership, who will be given job opportunities in the construction process.

The constructions will ultimately allow 200 out-of-school children (from age 9 to 18+) pr. week pr. year to attend formal class education leading to their possible achievement of a Tawjeehe (formal high-school qualification). Overall, we expect to observe (i) a significant increase in enrolment and attendance rate of Syrian refugees and unprivileged Jordanians in Azraq; (ii) improvements of curricular education activities and out-of-school vocational trainings; and (iii) a strengthened community cohesion and self-reliance; to the benefit of the crisis-affected community in Azraq.
