Education and Protection
The main objective of Component 1 is to improve education, engagement and protection opportunities for children, youth and other marginalised groups.
Qudra 2 will support children and youth who find it difficult to access education to develop their potential, which will contribute to a secure, stable and prosperous future for the region. Qudra 2 will also have a special focus on improving the well-being of vulnerable, traumatised groups.
Promoting improvements in facility management and the provision of transport to educational facilities, and supporting learning and exchange formats for children and youth
Structural barriers in Jordan’s educational system include children doing double shifts in schools, language barriers, vandalism, and the lack of secure and affordable school transport. Qudra 2 will target major challenges in the education sector and increase access to quality education services by developing an improved school transport system and a sustainable facility management system to enhance the learning environment for everyone.
Children and youth will be offered structured extracurricular sports and cultural activities to foster quality education and social cohesion.
Promoting protection measures for the self-development and wellbeing of children and vulnerable adults
Qudra 2 recognises the importance of handling psychological trauma professionally and works in cooperation with the Ministry of Health (MoH) to provide Iraqi health personnel with special training courses in Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) to strengthen their knowledge and skills and enable them to support Iraqi returnees, IDPs, Syrian refugees and host communities.
