As Jordan moves forward, its biggest challenge is developing a highly skilled workforce that is able to compete in the global economy while simultaneously focusing its efforts on addressing the high levels of unemployment that Jordanian youth face in their futures. Relief International-Schools Online (RI-SOL) works to address these prioritized and interconnected issues through programs in computer literacy, Internet connectivity, job skills and cultural exchange.
Relief International was the first aid organization to begin providing Internet connectivity in Jordan in 2001 when it established 17 Internet Learning Centers. Over the past decade it has continued to play a role as a driving force in Internet and communications technology education. In recent years, Relief International has established three Digital Community Centers in under-served areas, and has additionally incorporated focused efforts to provide community integration services to a disproportionately vulnerable and constantly growing population of Iraqi refugees. Currently, Relief International's work in Jordan is focused on assisting Syrian refugees and their Jordanian host communities.
