TREE program to help education system in Jordan

Save the Children Jordan and the MIT Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (MIT J-WEL), in collaboration with the Jordanian Ministry of Education, Community Jameel and Dubai Cares, a UAE-based global philanthropic organization, launched the Transforming Refugee Education Towards Excellence (TREE) program aimed at tackling the challenges encountered in primary and secondary education in Jordan. 

The program is one of Save the Children’s many educational programs, using innovative methodologies and tools benefiting teachers on a personal and professional level. After completing the training, teachers can apply these tools in the classroom so that students improve their academic achievement.

This pilot program is intended to benefit 745,000 students in public schools across the country. 

Executive Director of Save the Children Jordan Diala Al-Khamra said: “This cooperation aims to protect children and their education by building the capacity of teachers and improving the educational process in public schools (TREE) and by focusing on the social and emotional aspects of teachers that will transform the school environment to a friendly learning environment. “

Dr. M.S. Vijay Kumar, executive director of J-WEL, said: “We hope that this collaborative initiative will equip educators with tools and techniques to strengthen their well-being and capabilities leading to positive learning opportunities for children. We look forward to this work being a model for the region and elsewhere.”
