Reclaim Childhood

Reclaim Childhood

King's Academy seeks to instill confidence, hope, ambition and a sense of community in its students, who in turn offer the same to the displaced girls of the refugee communities outside of Amman.

Through Reclaim Childhood, an organization founded by two female student-athletes from Williams College in the United States, King's Academy students take part in organizing and hosting team-oriented sporting games. This takes place during eight to 12 Saturdays per school calendar year. Basketball, biking, relay-races, swimming, dance and soccer are among the activities designed to empower a new generation of young Arab refugee girls and women ages 8-18.

King's Academy helps with finding student and teacher volunteers who work hand in hand with Reclaim Childhood personnel and the girls. We provide our facilities and transportation to and from the Amman area.
