PLAYING FOR A COMMON FUTURE

The Azraq refugee camp is a refugee camp, located near Azraq, Jordan, built for refugees of the Syrian Civil War. It was developed, and is operated, by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in conjunction with the Government of Jordan. It first opened in April 2014. As of March 2016 it had over 32,000 refugees in it; by August 2019 that number was over 35,000.


Under the patronage of His Royal Highness Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, in partnership with the Asian Football Development Project (AFDP) and Streetfootballworld, Aurora BLUE was a coaching programme delivered in Al Azraq Refugee Camp. Local coaches and young volunteer coaches were trained in Aurora’s intensive sport, education and community programme before taking the lead to train 6 in-house teams as well as host community football for good activities. The campus, with a dedicated 6-a-side football pitch, was designed to offer the community a place where they could come together to reflect, learn and teach the principles of football for physical and mental well-being.
