The students at Emrawa Secondary School for Girls in Irbid, Jordan investigated the important issue of health and wellness in collaboration with the Advanced Math & Science IV, New York, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign about the problem of living an unhealthy lifestyle, and the students have stated the following in regards to the issue and their project:
The goal was to raise awareness and confront bad habits such as smoking, unhealthy diet, and poor sleep to ultimately improve the quality of life in the community. It is our hope that this work will influence school administrators to introduce and enforce healthy dietary choices for students.
This student project was created as part of Campfire 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US, Jordan, and Pakistan. Campfire is run by Global Nomads Group. Campfire is made possible thanks to the generous support of our partners The Bezos Family Foundation, an award from the Aspen Institute Stevens Initiative with support from the U.S. Department of State and the Bezos Family Foundation, and additional support from PhotoWings, the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, and the Yahoo Employee Foundation.
