Classroom Learning Space-Let’s bring the classroom to Za’atari.

As stated by Libraries Without Borders, “refugees are deprived of information, culture, education, and professional training, and they suffer from trauma, boredom, and loss of hope.” We need a way to change this.

Let’s deliver a toolbox containing touch pads and laptops to provide e-learning. E-readers/e-books and paper books and a selection of art and craft resources.

We need to change the definition of a refugee.

A refugee is a second-class citizen with a number scrawled on your hand or printed on a wristband, who everyone wishes would somehow go away. (Sunday Mail, October, 23, 2016)

“When you get to know us, you’ll see we are not that different. I am not just a number. None of us are.” ( Nujeen:One Girl’s Incredible Journey from War-Torn Syria in a Wheelchair)

Help Us Get Back Home!

Can you imagine living with your children in an environment full of crime, lack of freedom, limited food and portable shelters?

Unfortunately over 85 000 refugees fled the war in Syria and are living in inhumane conditions. What was meant to be a temporary infrastructure for many has turned into a permanent community. Although little hope for the future looks unimaginable, walls in Zaatari’s classrooms are lined with pictures and captions: “Help us back home.”Thousands Of Syrian Refugees Seek Shelter In Makeshift Camps In Jordan
