Experience Jordanien – Inklusion
Almasar works with nonprofit NGOs that train young adults with intellectual disability (age between 15 and 30), from both genders, in daily life skills and vocational training. For this Volunteers will be living with Host Families in Amman. Special Needs Support There are many families in Jordan who are unable to properly care for family members who have mental and physical disabilities, lack of support, proper infrastructure, and Social stigma still surrounds special needs in Jordan. We partnered with Centres providing individualised care and education that make a huge difference to the lives of people living with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. This project is well suited to compassionate, patient, and caring volunteers who have a strong interest in working with people with special needs. Previous experience with individuals with special needs are preferred. Volunteers will assist a team of local staff and fellow volunteers helping to run educational lessons, games and activities such as arts and crafts, tapestry and woodwork for children and adults who attend the special needs centres each day. The project aims and educational program after an individual assessment the program is set up as follows: ● Pre-vocational training (academic lessons, job training, independence training, sport, music, workshop training, cooking lessons…)
● Inclusive vocational training (training in personal competence, social competence, prefessional comepetence)
● Training of daily living skills in a group home for ladies
● Production of educational material
● Special Projects as theatre, activity days with the students, courses for parents.
● Camps and trips, home visit and training for volunteers and teachers the project provides transportation for the student, health care services, social support (food, clothing for the families in need).
