We reach out to our students all around the kingdom, touching their minds and hearts and creating a positive difference in their lives. Around 100,000 students are benefiting from INJAZ programs this year.

Since its inception, INJAZ has benefited over 250,000 students around the Kingdom.
INJAZ courses are given to students by volunteers; professionals who so care about Jordanian youth that they take time out of their day to make a difference. This year, around 2,000 volunteers are working with us. In the year 07-08, a total of 1,445 volunteers lead INJAZ classes. Throughout the past nine years, over 7,000 enthusiastic volunteers offered their time and expertise in conducting INJAZ courses.
The school teacher plays a major role in supporting the volunteer and facilitating the process of delivering INJAZ courses in the classroom. For every volunteer, there is a school teacher who is constantly making sure that the volunteer''s mission is running smoothly in the classroom.
INJAZ operates in all twelve governorates of Jordan. We are currently working with 160 schools and 25 universities. Throughout the last year 07-08, INJAZ worked with 146 schools and 25 universities around the Kingdom.

We work in full coordination with the Ministry of Education (MOE), the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and King Abdullah Fund for Development (KAFD). Moreover, the large network of private sector partners of more than 100 corporates gives essential leverage to INJAZ.
