On Wednesday September 12, the Huda kindergarten in Khashem Al Daraj opened its doors to 40 students. Initially the project was to renovate the old, dilapidated building that was, at the time, serving as the kindergarten. As more partners jumped on board, the village council was able to bring in an architect to design a new building, truly fit to function as a learning centre for the children. Leichhardt Friends of Hebron have been working with our partners on the ground for the last two years to raise funds for this integral project in the South Hebron Hills. Funds raised at our 2011 and 2012 Festival of Friendship, held during refugee week, were used to support this kindergarten project.
Congratulations to all involved in this project.
