Waqf Programme (Water) – Clean water for schools is the main project with Waqf program at Education Aid for Palestinians (EAP). Water is an incredibly important part of life that is severely lacking from many Palestinians’ lives. At EAP, we are targeting the Gaza Strip, providing clean water for schools.
Due to the occupation and blockade in Gaza – schools and other educational institutions suffer a chronic lack of water. Many children walk miles in the heat to attend schools spending a whole day there with no water.
Gaza suffers from a severe lack of water; according to the UN Environment Programmes, Gaza’s ground water could become unusable with the damage irreversible by 2020.
So far, we have reached 100 schools out of 300 schools in the Gaza Strip. But our target is to reach 300 schools by the end of 2020.
