Improving The Quality Of Education For Syrian And Jordanian Early Grade Primary School Children

DFID will provide up to £15 million over three  years to (i) improve the quality and equity of education provision for all early grade primary school children in Jordan and (ii) improve refugee children’s psychosocial well-being and social cohesion between Syrian refugees and host community children. DFID will do this by co-financing USAID’s $45 million over five years Early Reading and Maths Project (RAMP) whose goal is to improve the reading and maths skills of early grade Jordanian children and Syrian refugee children in grades. Of RAMP's nine components, DFID will support four areas of interest: psychosocial support for traumatized Syrian children, national scale learning materials with social cohesion messages, learning assessments to identify and address learning outcomes for refugees, and parental awareness of education opportunities for refugees. The program will reach over 300,000 children in K-3 in about 3,000 schools.
