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.
