For the Resilience in Schools of East Jerusalem (RiSE)
project, and notwithstanding the current Covid-19 crisis, Enabel is
implementing rehabilitation, transformation and extension works in three Waqf
schools in Jerusalem and Zaayem this summer 2020. These works, funded by the
European Union and Belgium, will allow the creation of a kindergarten, a
FabLab and additional classrooms. The creation of a kindergarten is highly
needed since there are not sufficient Waqf kindergartens in Jerusalem.
In Zaayem there are no public secondary schools for boys. Additional classrooms will be built on top of the only existing school, so that teenage boys don't need to cross a checkpoint anymore to reach their schools.
In Wadi al-Joz the first FabLab will be installed, making it our pilot for their creation in other schools. FabLabs are digital fabrication laboratories where you can innovate and develop almost anything by using advanced technology and 21st-century skills. The installed FabLabs will be accessible for multiple schools making it a creative space for young students to collaborate and create.
