In Jordan, the Qudra 2 programme and the BMZ-funded programme “Sport for Development”, implemented by GIZ, offer structured extracurricular sports activities for children and young people to foster quality education and social cohesion.
The Qudra 2 programme offers structured extracurricular sports activities for children and young people to foster quality education and social cohesion. Sport for Development employs proven educational methods to promote the physical and mental development of children and young people, including disadvantaged young people and those with disabilities.
Together, the two programmes conducted a “Sport Builds Inclusive Generations” workshop between 15 -17 November 2022. The workshop brought together 50 physical education teachers and resource room teachers from public schools in Amman, Zarqa, Salt, and Mafraq. The workshop aimed to adapt sports activities and make them more accessible to all young girls and boys, including those with disabilities. The participants were introduced to the Sport Builds Inclusive Generations manual, which serves as a practical guide for teachers who work with children and youth, including children with disabilities.
The workshop also focused on developing students’ life skills, leadership skills, teamwork, and self-confidence. The trained teachers will integrate the training content during physical education and extracurricular classes.
