Strong adult influences—typically parents—are critically important in a child’s development, but many times, and for many reasons, vulnerable children don’t have such figures involved in their lives. Moreover, children or young people unable to complete a formal education face a far different trajectory for their future than those who receive their diploma.

Introducing new job skills for refugees in Jordan

Alight affiliate Questcope works to create an inclusive market economy for marginalized communities in Jordan. In Za’atari Refugee Camp, its Innovation Center helps Syrian refugees become competitive in the job market through photography training. And in the city of Aqaba, its Learning Center provides technical training, business support, and micro-finance, empowering families to make informed decisions for their future.

Trauma recovery programs from Questscope

Questcope's trauma recovery programs combat mental health stigmas and aid refugees in long-term healing through creativity. Partnering with co-creation partners, they foster self-expression through storytelling, teach about trauma's biological effects, and empower young people to create art and music. Managed by Syrian refugee leaders in Za’atari Refugee Camp, these programs are expanding beyond the camp, initiating pilot programs across Jordan
