Dubai, United Arab Emirates - October 10, 2019:    Save the Children Jordan and the MIT Abdul Latif Jameel World Education Lab (MIT J-WEL), in collaboration with the Jordanian Ministry of Education, Community Jameel and Dubai Cares, the UAE-based global philanthropic organization,  launched the Transforming Refugee Education Towards Excellence (TREE) program aimed at tackling the challenges encountered in primary and secondary education in Jordan. 

The program is one of Save the Children's many educational programs, using innovative methodologies and tools benefiting teachers on a personal and professional level. After completing the training, teachers can apply these tools in the classroom so that students improve their academic achievement.
This pilot program is intended to benefit 745,000 students in public schools across the Kingdom. Teachers will indirectly contribute to the completion of a unique model that partners will be able to up-scale to reach other regions.

Executive Director of Save the Children Jordan Diala Al Khamra commented: “This cooperation aims to protect children and their education by building the capacity of teachers and improving the educational process in public schools (TREE) and by focusing on the social and emotional aspects of teachers that will transform the school environment to a friendly learning environment. '

Dr. M.S. Vijay Kumar, Executive Director of J-WEL, remarked: 'We hope that this collaborative initiative will equip educators with tools and techniques to strengthen their well-being and capabilities leading to positive learning opportunities for children. We look forward to this work being a model for the region and  elsewhere.'

The TREE program is part of Save the Children Jordan's wider mission to ensure all children have access to quality education; other initiatives include the “Every Child Learning (ECL)” program in partnership with Pearson, providing access to digital learning, remedial classes as well as continuous training and support to teachers. As a result, it is successfully improving grade level competencies and strengthening psychosocial wellbeing for Syrians and Jordanian student, in grade 4-6. Another educational programme is the “Enabling Access to Educational Pathways and Safer Learning Environments” project in partnership with the European Commission aiming to enable vulnerable, hard-to-reach, out-of-school children across Jordan.
