Learn initiative was initiated by Saddam Sayyleh, in Souf Camp in Jerash. The initiative began as an inspiration from Saddam’s personal life and experience, having been an orphan who was born in Souf Camp, and having identified several issues prevalent in the Camp that he thought should be resolved so that other children and youth in his community have better opportunities.

ILearn started by mobilizing youth volunteers to work with children and provide them with access to non-traditional learning opportunities and access to safe spaces where they can interact, express themselves freely, and acquire the skills, attitudes and behaviors necessary in life. ILearn later expanded to other areas of implementation and was able to gain the support of several entities; both private and public which opened up the opportunity.
