Photo Friday: Schneller School for Orphans
This Photo Friday is from Sherry Ott, who volunteered in Jordan last month with GeoVisions.
New cultures can be hard to decipher when you travel. During my time in the Middle East, I’m constantly challenged with understanding religious culture and Arabic culture. One of the highlights of my time in Jordan was a visit to the Schneller School for Orphans.
Located in East Amman, the school has been in operation since 1959 and is teaching students how to all get along despite cultural differences. This photo is a view of the school’s hallway; they support various religions and most importantly they teach tolerance and understanding. Their motto is “Learning to Live in Peace”.
GeoVisions will be announcing some new, exciting volunteer opportunities with the Schneller school; then you too can have the opportunity to live in this educational environment and be a part of that peace.
In addition to her Volunteer Chronicles on Briefcase to Backpack, Sherry gets more in depth on her personal blog, OttsWorld. Check out updates from this week:
