Description and results


This project aims to improve learning outcomes for all girls and boys, particularly marginalized children enrolled in public schools from early childhood to the end of secondary in Jordan through the Education for Jordan Prosperity (E4JP). Project activities include: (1) assisting in sustaining the activities of Jordan’s Ministry of Education; (2) accommodating 126,000 Syrian refugee children and over 46,000 children of other nationalities in public schools; and (3) improving the quality and equity of education services for the benefit of all girls and boys enrolled in public education. As with all budget projects, Canada is working in close cooperation with other donors and the Government of Jordan to(a) promote effective, transparent and accountable country systems; (b) increase donor coordination and harmonization; and (c) strengthen mutual accountability. E4JP also fosters greater policy dialogue among donors, government and partners, which helps to strengthen efforts for effective, focussed aid, and long-term development results. This project is continuously monitored and evaluated in coordination with other donors.
