AMMAN — Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) President Kim Young-mok on Saturday announced a JD5.2 million grant for the establishment of a new building for Al Amal Co-educational School for the deaf in Marka, Amman.

The project, to be implemented next year, is in line with the joint cooperation between the two countries, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

KOICA’s president made the announcement during a visit to the school, accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Mohammad Thneibat and Korean Ambassador to Jordan Choi Hong-ghi.

The new building will be constructed on a 10-dunum plot in Marka to replace the school’s currently leased building, according to Thneibat.
