USAID developed the Schools of Knowledge Economy Project (SKEP) to construct 25 new schools, distributed with a focus on host communities in overcrowded areas, such as Amman, Irbid, Al Zarqa, Al Balqa, Aqaba, Madaba, Al Karak, Jerash, and Tafieleh governorates. The project’s main goal is to offer modern learning environments that facilitate the use of technology, student-centered learning, community and parental engagement, and access for people with disabilities. In addition, this activity aims to improve the quality of education services and equip youth with employability and life skills. Therefore, SKEP schools are built with modern facilities and support MoE in providing deaf and hearing-impaired students with additional educational resources. In early 2020, UNOPS completed the furnishing of 6 SKEP schools in their first phase in addition to the provision of equipment to the science labs, computer labs, libraries, and outdoor sports facilities.
