In 2013, RI started providing informal education in Karak and is currently providing both remedial and informal education to students in Za’atari Camp. RI is also providing the same activities in Azraq camp.
RI recognized the importance of providing certified alternative educational opportunities in non-formal education programs e.g adult education and illiteracy elimination program, that target males and females above 15 years old .
In August 2014, Relief International (RI), in partnership with UNICEF, successfully completed the refurbishment of WASH facilities at 45 schools in Mafraq and Irbid governorates. The project aimed to improve sanitation conditions for students and to create a better learning environment.
The refurbishment included cleaning of sewer networks, cleaning of pipes connected to the toilets, washbasins, latrines, providing and installing plastic flushing system, providing and installing lighting units, etc.
“These kids are victims of war, and we as Relief International (RI) team believe that they have the same rights as any other students to be educated, continue schooling and pursue their dreams to have a better future” Sukainah and Hamzeh from RI said.
3 children with disabilities were referred by “Doctors Without Borders” to join the remedial education program as from August 24th, which RI is offering in partnership with UNICEF to Syrian refugee students between ages 6 and 18, since March 2013.
