MAFRAQ — Save the Children-Jordan (SCJ) is working to enrol children of Syrian refugees in the Zaatari Refugee Camp in schools, Randa Khatib, who is in charge of the educational outreach programme at SCJ, said on Monday.
She indicated that 2,100 children from the camp aged between six and 17 have so far been registered to enrol in schools, while over 4,000 children in the camp are of school age.
With a lack of entertainment options in the makeshift refugee camp in the Jordan Valley, Khaldoun Ahmad's initiative was to become the saving grace for Syrian children learning to settle into Jordan.
Children from Ruseifa were given an opportunity on Thursday to establish rapport with police officers working at the Family Protection Department (FPD), under a programme implemented by Save the Children-Jordan (SCJ).
World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse arrived this year with a packed agenda to improve children’s rights in Jordan.
