Experience Jordanien – Inklusion

Experience Jordanien, Inklusion

Almasar works with nonprofit NGOs that train young adults with intellectual disability (age between 15 and 30), from both genders, in daily life skills and vocational training.  For this Volunteers will be living with Host Families in Amman. Special Needs Support There are many families in Jordan who are unable to properly care for family members who have mental and physical disabilities, lack of support, proper infrastructure, and Social stigma still surrounds special needs in Jordan. We partnered with Centres providing individualised care and education that make a huge difference to the lives of people living with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. This project is well suited to compassionate, patient, and caring volunteers who have a strong interest in working with people with special needs. Previous experience with individuals with special needs are preferred. Volunteers will assist a team of local staff and fellow volunteers helping to run educational lessons, games and activities such as arts and crafts, tapestry and woodwork for children and adults who attend the special needs centres each day. The project aims and educational program after an individual assessment the program is set up as follows: ● Pre-vocational training (academic lessons, job training, independence training, sport, music, workshop training, cooking lessons…)

● Inclusive vocational training (training in personal competence, social competence, prefessional comepetence)

● Training of daily living skills in a group home for ladies

● Production of educational material

● Special Projects as theatre, activity days with the students, courses for parents.

● Camps and trips, home visit and training for volunteers and teachers the project provides transportation for the student, health care services, social support (food, clothing for the families in need).

 Training and Protection of Heritage Almasar works with non profit projects. The project aims at protecting cultural heritage, building capacities within communities living in the surrounding heritage sites and enabling sustainable preservation of cultural heritage by promoting the active involvement of the host communities in its protection. Tzhe project also supports and empowers local communities through educational and skills based training. For this Volunteers will be living with Families in Madaba Programs Women’s Empowerment Program Many women in Jordan experience poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment. In turn, this impacts their children. In an effort to combat the issues these women face, a range of initiatives have been established to improve their access to education and skills training and promote income- generating activities. This project is well suited to volunteers who are passionate about women’s empowerment and who also have skills in food preparation, arts and crafts and small business promotion. The projectis supporting a local productive kitchen in Hesban. The kitchen was established in 2021 and they will be serving their meals to the excavation team that will work in Hesban in June and July. The volunteers will assist the kitchen owner in pricing their meals and products, preparing weekly meal schedules (including vegetarian options) and work with involved families to assure quality control. The required work will require site visits to Hesban to meet the people involved in the productive kitchen and then can be performed remotely. Basic Arabic language will be needed. Expected workload: 16 hours/week.

Teaching and/or Art and Music The Teaching project in Jordan provides an important educational platform for underprivileged children and young adults who need additional support to obtain their high school certificate or to work towards higher education and acceptance to university. We partnered with learning centres that support students who have been part of youth homes and come from challenging backgrounds, who live in areas where education is not accessible and who live in refugee camps, and integrate them well into the job market and live as an equal member of society in Jordan. Volunteers should expect to tutor students one-on-one with a focus on teaching English, unless the volunteer can speak Arabic well enough to be able to teach other subjects. Volunteers will assist the staff at these centres by running intensive language classes and educational activities, providing tutoring for exams, helping with applications for further study opportunities and help to develop resumes. Volunteers should expect to work outside Amman and rural areas. English classes at the Hesban Women Centre and Khirbet As-Souq Women Association. Volunteers will offer English classes to children (7-14 years old) and adults in Hesban and Khirbet As-soug. Summer camps. We will be running an archaeology-themed summer camp in Hesban in July for English and Arabic speaking children (6-14 years old). Volunteers help in planning and implementing children’s activities. In presence in Hesban. Expected workload:20 hours/week
