Launched in 2019, TREE aims to benefit 1,350 teachers and reach 745,000 individuals over five years
through a systems-wide teacher-training programme centred on incorporating compassion into
education. TREE is an initiative of Save the Children and the MIT Abdul Latif Jameel World Education

Cares.


Hana Darwazeh Ramadan, Global VP of Corporate Social Responsibility at Hikma, said: “We are looking

Pharmaceuticals. They are strengthening a ground-breaking programme that provides crucial assistance
to teachers in Jordan and the refugee children they teach. We are proud of our cross-sector partnerships
that make this impact for children possible, including philanthropists and foundations like Community
Jameel and Dubai Cares, the Jordanian government, and now the private sector through Hikma
Pharmaceuticals.”
