AMMAN — The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Ministry on Thursday honoured the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) for “outstanding performance” in a certified IT programme that caters to young Syrians in the Zaatari Refugee Camp.

ICT Minister Azzam Sleit presented a plaque to NRC acting country director Robert Beer during a seminar on “Implementing the New ICDL and e-Learner Programmes” in Amman, an NRC statement said.

“As an often marginalised group in emergencies, NRC strives to enhance the skills and personal capacities of youth, and this award is a symbol of NRC’s success in implementing internationally certified ICT courses in challenging contexts,” the statement quoted Beer as saying.
