According to a report by Thomson Reuters Foundation (May, 2017) Jordan, a small country similar in size to the state of Indiana has welcomed over 1.4 million Syrian refugees since 2011.
Jordan has always been a safe haven for refugees and immigrants, welcoming them with open arms in spite of the strain this puts on their economy. King Abdullah announced last year plans to integrate Syrian children into the Jordanian public school system, as many of these children have already lost years of education due to the crisis. Like Raghdad in the video, thousands of refugee children have found refuge in the Jordanian School system. These schools are overcrowded and in desperate need of help. Both government and non-government organizations (NGOs) in Jordan are looking for help in assisting these schools with supplies to ease the burden.

ESL Connexus and the Queen Rania Teacher Academy are partnering together to provide sports equipment for 20 of these public schools in Jordan. Each of these schools was chosen due to the high concentration of Syrian refugee children in the classes. (To view the full report click here.)
In October of 2017, ESL Connexus will take a small team to Jordan. During this trip, we will visit some of these schools, meet teachers and students, and deliver the sports kits. Would you consider being a part of this amazing project by making a tax-deductible donation HERE? Would your organization consider adopting and raising $700 for one of the 20 schools?
Sports Kits for the 20 schools will cost $14,000.00 ($700 per school)
