We made it! I mean the campaign, the building process is just beginning!
Many many thanks for your amazing support during the whole campaign! We managed to have 49 fantastic supporters (backers) and we managed to collect enough money to finance one classroom! Can’t wait to see how the classroom will be filled with happiness and positivity! The Emergency Architecture & Human Rights team is already in Azraq and with the local partners they are already doing the preparation. Please check this short video by Helping Refugees in Jordan to see the current state of the site: https://www.facebook.com/HelpingSyrianRefugeesJordan/videos/1371406006336089/
We will keep you informed about the developments and we will send you the rewards in the upcoming few days, 1-2 weeks.
Cheers, the project TEAM

werk, bauen + wohnen - "Mit Lehm gegen die Bildungskrise"
Thanks to Ben Muschg from werk, bauen + wohnen, we were just presented on the magazine’s online pages! Thanks Ben! He was also there on our offline event at the Architekturforum Zürich, so he was able to learn more about the situation, … from our guests and team.
Great summary about the goals, first project in Za’atari and currently running project in Azraq! We hope it will generate some discussion in the Swiss architecture society and hopefully there will be more individuals and firms who will support the school project! Please share this article in your network and invite your friends and family to learn more about the project and to support it!
