As for now- we are stuck between a rock and a hard place:
on the one end - we are ready to go on renovating and re-establishing the school facility, yet as long as the students are prohibited from leaving the campground- it makes no sense to begin this operation.
Since we arrived on the island more than 3 years ago there are 2 basic assumptions that guide us at each and every step we do -
o First, to address the need that arises from the refugee's community
o Second, to work with the people and not for them.
we are looking for ways to try and see how to adapt our activities and contemplating whether we should change our pedagogy and establish new projects near Moriah camp. the most important thing we have to focus on is re-establishing our activity in the best way possible for our students. the instability and the harsh conditions in the camp in the past few months have emphasized how much a stable school structure is needed. We keep going, not stopping and not giving up.
We will continue to providing quality education, a safe space where children's are just children's, and significant adults who dream with them of a better future!
