Projects

We focus on projects all over Jordan. Our Projects span 2-8 weeks, depending on the students, and focus on SOLE pedagogy. Our method consists of seeking out groups of students and reaching out to their location to teach them where they feel comfortable. Student ages range from 14 to18 or 17 to 2. Some of our students attend traditional school, and others are not recieving any formal school education.
