Both of my parents are unemployed. They encourage me to work well. Since the start of the year, my grades have improved thanks to the mathematics classes. I have progressed from 8 to 12 out of 20. The teachers at school are happy″.

PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES: a school remedial centre for children and teenagers who have dropped out of school

The Al Hamawi Center, which means “protected place”, in Bethany welcomes young boys and girls from 6 to 18 years, most of them from the poorest families in Bethany and its vicinity. They follow a school remediation program and take part in extracurricular activities as well as summer and winter camps. In 2017, the launch of the Hamawi Talents project helped 20 young senior school students in their choice of career.

SPECIAL FOCUS ON YOUNG TEENAGERS

The Al Hamawi Center’s educational project has refocused on young teenagers by offering them personalized monitoring, the reorganization of activities which are greater in number, more coherent and of better quality, as well as a focus on language learning and a more systematic assessment of educators and teachers.

2017 Results:

  • 75 students in the 2nd and 3rd years of state secondary schools in Bethany and Abu Dis benefited from remediation classes.
  • 240 young boys and girls benefited from extracurricular activities and summer and winter camps.
  • 20 female senior school students were supported in their professional integration.
