ZA’ATARI, Jordan, 8 October 2013 — This week UNICEF Jordan together with partner Save the Children Jordan are finishing the distribution of school bags and supplies to students at Za’atari School 2.
Throughout the summer, School 2 was running catch up classes for children who had missed school, so first semester started at the beginning of October.
Many children have missed months and often years of education due to conflict and displacement.
There are approximately 4,000 students from grades 1 – 12 in School 2 – girls shift in the morning and boys in the afternoon.
The schoolbags are part of a generous contribution by the State of Kuwait, the European Union, and Germany/KFW.
