Open Learning Exchange (OLE) (TIGER Girls in Za'atari)
Open Learning Exchange is committed to ensuring that everyone, especially our children, has access to a high quality basic education. We work with nation-based entrepreneurs committed to transforming their current educational systems into highly effective and affordable learning systems that can benefit all of their people.
We believe this can lead to more productive lives, communities and nations and the possibility of a peaceful world. Since 2007, we have helped establish Open Learning Communities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America for children, adolescents, and young adults, including those whose lives have been disrupted by violent conflicts.
Tiger Girls Overview
The TIGER Project (These Inspiring Girls Enjoy Reading) is a project of OLE International being carried out in partnership with UNHCR and International Relief & Development with generous support from UNHCR Innovation. The goal of the TIGER project is to demonstrate and document the effectiveness of an innovative and scalable community based approach to learning that is being carried out with adolescent girls in the Za’atari Refugee Camp in Jordan. The program aims to increases the sense of agency, meaning, and connection of the participants while also supporting their personal learning goals. The objective of this demonstration project is to show that the methodology will enable the girls to take greater control over their lives as they develop basic knowledge, critical skills, and meaningful relationships.
