activities with Iraqi and Syrian children (refugees and locals): The participants (except Friday, Saturday and Sunday) will assist the teaching every day during the informal school projects (Summer School) that Caritas organizes in the parishes where there is annexed Caritas center.
Field visit: Visits to the Syrian families in the places where they are more established; visits within the parishes where Iraqi refugees are hosted.
Community relations: Even the hosting community lives in a difficult reality because of poverty and isolation. The project wants to build relationships with the community and the locals.
Sightseeing: We will organise touristic tours in the area and of the archaeological areas in Jordan like Jerash and Petra. We will visit the archaeological sites in the city of Amman. The tourist aspect is of significant importance as it represents one of the main sources of income of the country, now in sharp decline for the great political problems of its neighbourhood..
Group: A key aspect of the trip is the experience as a group of volunteers. There will be focus on it before, during and after the trip.
Think about fun and freetime activities you could offer to the children, English course could be one of it.
