Amman, the capital, is Jordan's largest city. It's also the most diverse: the Amman metro area is home to hundreds of Palestinian, Iraqi, Syrian, Sudanese, Somali, and Bedouin Jordanian families. RC currently serves the Hashmi Shemali, Jabal Hussein, Hussein Camp, An-Nuzha, Marka Janoobia, Marka Shemalia, Jabal Nasr, Jabal Amman, Jabal Nadeef, Jabal Akhdar, and Jabal Weibdeh neighborhoods of Amman. We partner in Amman with Jadal Cultural Center for our teen programming, and play at the American Community School one weekend each month.
Originally a military hub and a destination for Palestinian refugees, Zarqa is Jordan's third largest city, and home to a growing number of Syrian and Iraqi urban refugees. Because of its distance from Amman, refugees in Zarqa have difficulty accessing NGO services. So RC comes to them, providing quality after school athletics in the underserved Jana'a, New Zarqa, Sukhna Camp, Hashmiyya, Jabal Abyad, and Jabal Tariq neighborhoods twice per week.
RC partners with Kings Academy boarding school to bring refugee girls from Amman, Zarqa, and Madaba to play at the Kings campus in Madaba. RC coaches work with Kings students to implement field days, relays, tournaments and a variety of service projects.
