Thanks to all our friends and supporters, the fundscollected during the Global Open Challenge will enable us to run our remedialeducation classes, which support students who are having difficulties atschool. Preparations have begun on this important project which will start justas soon as the funds are received.
Currently, the older children at Karama are enjoying dailyEnglish classes and music lessons with our international volunteers. The restof their time is spent working on a blog about Palestine and releasing theirenergy through the various sports activities that local volunteers organise forthem. The younger children are learning and having fun in the creative andimaginative play activities organised by the international volunteers. They tooenjoy practising their musical skills in the singing session which takes placeat the end of each day.The remedial lessons being prepared will target male and female UNRWA
school students who are identified by their test scores as being thosewith the greatest risk of academic failure. We will provide them withsupplementary lessons, that aim to address the combined interactionbetween education and psychosocial health, given the poor educationalenvironment and the trauma experienced by the children due to their lifeunder occupation. In particular, we aim to improve the test scores of theparticipating students in the subjects of Arabic, English, Mathematics andScience. Furthermore, we aim to address directly any observed psychosocialissues and to improve the interaction among teachers and students through the program's small class sizes.Currently, we are in contact with the UNRWA school staff to coordinate the practical aspects of the courses. Aside from these preparations however, we still have to wait for the funds to arrive!Again a huge thank you to all our donors, supporters and friends! Without your help and support, we would not have the resources to carry out this remedial education project!KARAMA ORGANIZATION FOR WOMEN AND CHILDRENDeheishe Refugee CampBethlehem - Palestine.Tel: +972 - 2 - 275 13 13e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.orgDirector: Yasser Al-HajTel: +972 - 599 - 033 021office: =972-2-2751313
