Amoda Primary School is 20 kilometres from Slemani and accommodates 355 Syrian refugee children aged six to fourteen at the Arbot refugee camp. This is a fraction of the total number of children at the camp who need education. The school is managed by the Education Department of Slemani Directorate (EDSD) which has appointed the school’s teachers and chosen the curriculum. It comprises several tents pitched inside an abandoned warehouse, with no playground or proper heating.
