About the Institution: The Norwegian Refugee Council is an independent humanitarian organization helping people forced to flee. Whatever it takes. Wherever, and whenever, we're needed. It delivers high-quality aid where needs are greatest. When it started our relief efforts after World War Two, humanitarian needs were critical. They still are – and it is still there, protecting people forced to flee and supporting them as they build a new future. Bu now it expanded and started working in both new and protracted crises across 30 countries, where we provide food assistance, clean water, shelter, legal aid, and education. NRC works with the Jordanian Ministry of Education and UNICEF to ensure that out-of-school Syrian refugee children do not fall further behind. We work to bring young Syrians programmes that will help them develop a professional skill set.
Life Skills-Related: The project title is “NRC Youth training center (multiple programmes within which have life skills as a component)” and its main objective is to have youth personal and social development to actively participate in community. Thematic areas under which life skills are addressed include: Vocational disciplines (e.g. carpentry, plumbing, etc.), and ICT (e.g. Computer literacy, social media, etc.). The main topics through which life skills education takes place in the programme are: Social and emotional learning and psychosocial support, Participation/rights of children and young people, Livelihoods (generic skills) and financial literacy, Civic engagement, and Entrepreneurship.
