Young refugees should have the opportunity to develop and grow in a school environment.
RI’s educational centers in Azraq and Zaatari refugee camps in Jordan offer young Syrian refugees this opportunity.
The centers primarily offer support in four major subjects; Arabic, English, Math, and Science. These classes help students develop academically by providing additional support in areas that students may have problems with due to previous instability.
The centers offer more than just academic support though. They also offer opportunities for personal growth; after-school clubs and in-school activities where students can learn new skills, sports facilities where they can play games and exercise healthily, and libraries where they can access new information and knowledge.
Access to these types of opportunities is critical for young people to grow and develop.
The young refugees who come to the RI centers make the most of this opportunities. No two students come to the centers for the same reason, or use the facilities in the same way, but each of them uses it to develop, grow and pursue their dreams.
Below, Sameera, Omar, Bayan and Shaima tell us what inspires them to come to the RI educational centers each day.
