Raise money for Reclaim Childhood

Reclaim Childhood creates safe and inclusive spaces for refugee and local girls in Jordan to thrive by playing sports, working with coaches, and building community.


Reclaim Childhood started programming in 2008 with four weeks of summer sports camp, funded by a Kathryn Davis Peace Grant. Since then, RC has built on its flagship summer camp to expand to year-round after school sports practices, teen leadership development, and coach training in East Amman and Zarqa. Originally founded to serve the displaced Iraqi community, RC adapted to the dynamic refugee situation in Jordan and now provides programming for refugees from seven countries as well as the Jordanian host community. 


RC gets girls out of the house and onto the field, working towards three main goals:


1) To provide a safe space where participants can “Reclaim Childhood” and just be kids.


2) To empower and inspire girls and young women, by employing the positive impact of sport and play to build socioemotional and life skills.


3) To connect diverse communities that otherwise may not interact – refugees and host community Jordanians alike.

 

All components of the program take place in female-only spaces, led by local and refugee women who act as mentors and role models for participants. More specifically, these components include our After School Sports Program, Qudrati Teen Leadership Program, Summer Camp, and Coach Clinics.
