UNICEF and the Lego Foundation support more than 145,000 children in Jordan to learn through play
Play is paramount for all children’s healthy development and fostering the breadth of skills they need to navigate a complex and uncertain world.
Thousands of boxes with LEGO® play materials have been distributed in schools, kindergartens and Makani Centres throughout the country.
The support from the LEGO Foundation to UNICEF is helping children and their parents from vulnerable districts and Syrian refugees.
“We are happy to be creating something and my children are learning how to share and participate,”
“I feel very excited because I have achieved my dream and seen #LEGO bricks right in front of me. We can make a house 🏡 an airplane ✈️ a machine and many other things,”
“Learning through play is very important because it’s child-centered. The teacher steps back, while the child is in the driving seat,”
Thanks to our partnership with @LEGOFoundation over 145,000 children are learning through play in Jordan this year 🙌
