Al-Noor Foundation is committed to advance the education development and success of children in Palestine. In partnership with Anera early childhood development program we will be renovating and upgrading Al Ayzarieh school located in Jerusalem, Palestine. A group of local activists in Al Ayzarieh in 1998 opened a center that included a preschool, a primary health care clinic run by UNRWA, and a space for youth recreational activities. Their initiative provides relief and support to disadvantaged families living in a community of 7,000 refugees.
Many Palestinian children are not enrolled in early education. The availability of preschools and kindergartens are scarce. Due to the tense and often violent climate early childhood education is needed but difficult to attain. We will be targeting the key needs of the school which includes upgrading the entrance, walls and fencing, bathrooms, classrooms, lighting, classroom furniture and playground.
