Literacy Program for Arab and English Children
Through discussions with Syrian refugee families in Jordan the Terafund Germany staff heard time and again that there was an immense need for educational resources for children. In addition to the traumatic experiences of war that many of these children have experienced many also have insufficient access to educational opportunities and many are unable to read and write. Tearfund Germany has developed child-friendly instructional books to be used with these children as well as offering literacy courses in both Arabic and English.
Since the demand is so great, more than 50 course instructors have been trained.
Additionally, due to the demand Tearfund Germany has already started the printing of a second edition.
