OUR HISTORY

 

In 2007, MECI launched its pilot comprehensive after school program in Beit Rima, a village in the West Bank strained by high rates of poverty and unemployment. Implemented in collaboration with Mercy Corps, the education-based community development program offers beneficiaries academic help, extracurricular activities, basic health care, psychological monitoring, and nutritious snacks.

 

Inspired by the success of the West Bank program, the organization founded MECI Jordan in 2013 to address the unmet educational needs of Syrian refugee and disadvantaged host community children.
