Our History

Save the Children has been working in Jordan since 1985. The Jordan Country office transitioned to Save the Children International on 1 March 2012.

Save the Children in Jordan focuses on building the capacity of its local partners, and is developing, implementing, and sustaining a continuum of highly successful programmes to improve living conditions and opportunities for children, youth, women and families. Seventy per cent of the population in Jordan is under the age of 30, therefore Save the Children’s programmes utilize a holistic approach which engages parents, youth and young children in education, protection, and livelihoods initiatives. Our programmes support affirmative civic action, and link young people to their communities and the growing knowledge economy.


The ECCD bridges the gap between the learning environment in both KGs and first grades, expanding the thematic approach to include grades 1-3, and supporting the improvement of the ECCD quality assurance system.
