AMMAN — Children from the UNICEF-supported Makani centre in Baqaa on Tuesday were visited by French Ambassador to Jordan David Bertolotti, the Minister of Education Omar Razzaz, CEO of Orange Jordan Jerome Henique and UNICEF representative Robert Jenkins, an embassy statement said.

“France has been actively supporting the Makani programme in Jordan for two years now, with a contribution of around 2.5 million euros,” said Bertolotti, adding “I am pleased to see today how so many Syrian children have benefited from this programme.”

The delegation observed the children as they used a dynamic digital learning programme, an initiative supported by Orange Jordan, in partnership with the Ministry of Education and UNICEF. France has so far provided 5.4 million euros to UNICEF for education and protection programmes aimed at vulnerable children in Jordan.
