WORKSHOP 1+1=11 is a participative workshop where we teach and learn to / from the community to use low cost local material.

The workshop is part of “100 schools for refugee children” project started by EAHR in 2017. It will be a hands-on experience offering the possibility to directly engage with the EAHR team and Syrian refugees.

The project focuses on the expansion of the existing school facilities in order to increase the school attendance of syrian refugee children in Azraq village, outside of the Azraq refugee camp, today the second largest refugee camp in Jordan.
The project will be implemented in collaboration with The Syrian Fund and The South Azraq Women’s Association.

Interested participants are asked to fill out the form from the “enrolment section”. EAHR will assess each application and will select 20 candidates who will receive a confirmation mail by the 25th of may with all the required documents.
