Background: The Collateral Repair Project (CRP) in Amman, Jordan has been providing assistance to refugee victims of violent conflict since 2006. Our programs seek to restore dignity among these displaced populations as well as ensure their basic needs are met. We do so through running an Emergency Assistance Program and a Family Resource and Community Center, which hosts a varied program of activities and learning opportunities to allow refugees to rebuild the community ties they have lost. CRP’s great strengths are the wealth of knowledge we have about the refugee community in Amman and the strong relationships we have developed with the individuals we serve.
One of our most popular programs serving hundreds of community members each semester is our English classes. Available to teenage and adult refugees, our English courses run regularly throughout the year. English-language skills are invaluable to refugees. Many refugees in our community hope to resettle in English-speaking countries. Learning to speak English can also help these refugees find employment in the future and more easily integrate into their new communities.
In accordance with the COVID-19 crisis, we have taken our English program online and are teaching over Skype. We are looking for creative, dedicated teachers to work virtually with our students during the 8 week summer semester.
