Back to School – Education Aid For Palestinians (EAP)
In September 2018, more than 1,300,000 students were back to school in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. This seasonal project takes place during school and winter time.
Every September, thousands of Palestinian children in refugee camps have approached a new school year but their families are struggling to provide even their basic daily needs. At EAP we aim to provide aid for students so they are successfully supporting themselves, and their families.
This project will help address the following prevalent problems:
- The misconception of student’s education
Saving a child is typically associated with food and shelter, and never with education. Despite the fact that education is truly the way to mobilise and empower a society from the grassroots.
At EAP, the root cause and symptoms are invariably tackled.
- The psychological toll on both the teachers and students
Since students are unable to go to school and receive an education, teachers are also losing their working opportunity. For this reason, we launched our back to school project where we aim to empower students and teachers with the appropriate environment to thrive in academically.
- Standing in solidarity to combat the chief social problem of ignorance and illiteracy
To bring down any nation, you must restrict their autonomy and access to education, since with education, you have a powerful, self-sustainable society whom are uprooted from the grassroots. They become powerful, invincible, and regenerative.
Expectedly, this tool is jettisoned from Palestinians, and we aim to tackle this.
