In 2016, the project was renewed on a much grander scale: 500 students, 50 schools, and 25 local photographers. Working alongside Children’s Museum Jordan, UNICEF and the European Union were once again able to bring photography to a new class of young people.
“In Jordan, UNICEF is using photography, art, music and theatre as a first level of psychosocial support for Syrian children and youth,” Miraj Pradhan, Head of Communication for the UNICEF Jordan Country Office, tells The Creators Project. “But more and more, it is also proving to be a great social cohesion tool, providing opportunities for Jordanian and Syrian kids to work together and learn about each other.”
