Rasha* attends one of the centers in Jordan. Like most Syrian refugee families, Rasha’s family had to leave their home back in Aleppo’s suburbs and travel for two days to reach the Jordanian border. After living in Za’atari Refugee Camp for almost two months, Rasha’s father was able to move the family to Hay Nazzal area in Amman.
Through our Every Child Learning partnership with Save the Children, we are working to deliver high-quality education to Syrian refugees and vulnerable children in Jordan. Our partnership involves raising awareness of education in emergencies, providing financial support for Save the Children’s work, and innovating new solutions that are designed to address the unique needs of children affected by conflict.
- £1.7m+ invested in R&D of new education solutions, supporting two Save the Children Learning Centers, and joint advocacy.
- £3.4m committed in 2016, doubling our initial investment and extending the partnership from 2017-2019.
