Train a teacher to provide a safe and positive learning environment for girls who were forced to flee the war in Syria.
There are approximately 338,000 Syrian children now living as refugees in Jordan. This has put a severe strain on the education system in Jordan and has resulted in overcrowded classrooms. Further to this, the number of female students attending school is in decline as girls drop out due to family pressure and feeling isolated in school.
The gift of training for a teacher will equip teachers with the skills they need to integrate new students into the classroom.
As well as providing an education, teachers will now be equipped to help girls stay in school and will work to increase school attendance, particularly for girls.
