An organisation that provides peer-to-peer mentoring and educational support programmes to help integrate marginalised and at-risk youth into mainstream professional and social opportunities. They have designed the Arab world’s first Graduate Equivalency Diploma (GED) and a certification program for primary school dropouts.
- Overall, the programmes have reached over 200,000 people since 2002.
- Nearly two-thirds of participants in the non-formal education programmes continue on to a higher level of schooling, reintegrate into formal classrooms or participate in government-sponsored vocational training programmes.
- A randomised controlled trial carried out in Jordan by the University of Oxford revealed reductions in antisocial behaviour and observed small positive changes with emotional symptoms, social skills and self-efficacy among participants with higher levels of attendance.
