2017 - 2019

UN Women “Education Services in Za’atari and Azraq Refugee Camps – Phases one, two and three” project focus is to improve the quality of educational services for Syrian refugees through strengthening the existing programs that provide access to educational opportunities for children and adolescents. Additionally, the project aims at increasing Syrian women’s access to sustainable opportunities to generate income, empowering them with the knowledge and skills that will aid them in becoming active contributors and decision makers in their communities as well as increasing their awareness of their rights.

ASK led the Content Development, Implementation and Monitoring and Evaluation of the project taking into consideration gender sensitivity, the promotion of women empowerment, gender and diversity principles while avoiding gender stereotyping. ASK designed and developed the four following programs below:

  • Learning professionals: Focused on developing the competencies of the learning professionals related to teaching and developing a sense of responsibility among students.
  • Day Care Services: Aimed to improve the quality of daycare services that the Syrian children are receiving at the camps.
  • After School Learning and Support: Focused on supporting and assisting students in completing their homework more efficiently and accurately as well as altering and enhancing their attitude towards learning.

Adults Basic Skills: Focused on building the skills of partially literate and illiterate women in four subject literacy areas: Arabic, English, Basic Numeracy, and Basic ICT.

The project benefited and created a significant and direct impact on 116 Syrian Learning Professionals, 666 women, 1,321 students from grade (1- 6) and 1,385 children in daycare at the three centers in Za’atari and Azraq Camps. The target groups were provided with quality educational services to meet their needs and enhance their capabilities while giving them the space to create goals and aspire for a better future.
