AMMAN — As part of its volunteers’ vision to support youth, 14 volunteers from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) conducted collaboration activities in five different centres exclusively dedicated to the Jordanian youth, a statement from the organisation said on Sunday.

The activities were conducted in Amman, Irbid, Aqaba and Petra between August 21 and September 12 and concentrated on learning through music, art classes and physical activities, the statement said.

KOICA camp collaboration activities included learning music scales by practising on actual musical instruments, educating the students on the importance of dental hygiene, learning basic taekwondo moves in a fun and dynamic way through music and dance and painting the walls with inspiring drawings as part of the artistic activities, according to the statement.

In addition, KOICA volunteers created a guide book that contains various artistic, physical and healthy activities to be conducted during future classes, the statement added.

On September 12, KOICA volunteers concluded their youth camp activities with the final activity at Dar Al Hanan Orphanage located in Irbid while receiving full support from the Ambassador of the Republic of Korea to Jordan Lee Jae-wan and KOICA Country Director Kim Hyo-jin, the statement said.

Through these various activities, KOICA volunteers “spread the concept of volunteering among the Jordanian youth while giving them the opportunity to explore their potentials and discover their self-esteem, so they can lift their country up with enthusiasm and dedication,” the statement concluded.
