AJYAL FOUNDATION FOR EDUCATION
Project - Implementing the Social-Emotional-Learning (SEL) model to improve well-being and educational outcomes of children in conflict-affected areas
10 January 2022 - 9 January 2025
This comprehensive project aims to improve children’s wellbeing and educational outcomes and build their resilience by introducing the SEL model to 12 schools in Al-Bureij refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, Palestine.
The project will train teachers in SEL skills - an evidence-based child-centred model that supports teachers and learners to address socio-emotional learning challenges. These skills consist of 3 major categories:
• Cognitive: problem-solving, reasoning, planning, analysis and decision-making.
• Intrapersonal: self-regulation, mastery orientation, motivation, self-efficacy, perseverance, and values.
• Interpersonal: peaceful conflict resolution, empathy, teamwork, social awareness, communication, collaboration, and social intelligence.
