The Amal ou Salam school is located in a rural area outside of Jerash, Jordan, and has the capacity to serve 60 children. The school plays an important role by filling a gap in the education system: Syrian children are now able to to enroll in Jordanian schools, however they are usually unprepared to join their Jordanian peers. The Amal ou Salam’s team is working with Syrian kids to make sure they are adequately prepared to start school. Most Syrian children who are living as refugees in Jordan have been out of school for several years and need significant catch-up time and individualized attention to make up for the hundreds of hours of class time they have missed out on.
Over the past few years, Amal ou Salam has successfully been able to enroll several dozens students from in the Jordanian public schools. We are proud of their accomplishments and excited to welcome even more students as we expand and improve the school building to accommodate the many Syrian children in the area.
Our centre in Jordan has become a gathering place for the local community, not only Syrians but also Jordanian enjoy the safe and peaceful environment of our school.
