"The right to a childhood of health, education, happiness and dignity is the right of every child, and it is well within our collective capacity to realize that right".  Queen Rania
To tackle and raise awareness of Child Labour in Jordan and the negative impact that this social malaise has on our children and community, The Jordan Museum in collaboration with the Social Support Centre and Amman Baccalaureate School arranged a workshop entitled "No to Child Labour". The idea for this workshop was initiated when a young adult from the Amman Baccalaureate School worked on a project that dealt with Child Labour in Amman. His project was compiled into a calendar with pictures of young labourers and factual information regarding the statistics of Child Labour in Amman. The workshop was created in order to include and engage participants from two very different social backgrounds. The workshop involved past child labourers who shared and shed light on their past experiences from working on the streets of Jordan to how they benefited from gaining an education and appreciating their opportunities of being rescued from the streets.  The group then participated in their own discussion around the dangers of working on the streets and they also drew pictures of their unique encounters. 
We hope that their stories will have a positive effect on those children who have not suffered the same starkness of reality.

Kites are unanimously used for pleasure and enjoyment for all young children today, but they too have a long history in many cultures. Their first appearance was in China, about 2,800 years ago where they were made from silk and other soft fabrics. They served different functions depending on the culture they were used in. They were associated with religious symbols, others were used as instruments of war and others were developed as practical tools. During the summer vacation, the Jordan Museum decided to engage children in this long tradition of kite making. Two workshops were organized in cooperation with Madrasati in Abu Hanifa Primary School for Boys and the Omar Barghouti Primary School for Boys in which 40 participants learnt how to construct and decorate kites.
