Construction begins on new schools in Gaza

Construction work has begun to build two new schools in Gaza, creating education opportunities for over 1,700 students in 2017.

The entire project involves building four new schools and the rehabilitation of an existing school and includes class furniture, tools and ICT equipment.

Additionally, the schools will be fitted with solar panels to reduce the ongoing running cost of the school, once open.

Each school will consist of 21 classrooms, ICT and science labs, library and playgound, ensuring that the best available facilities will be utilised by the students

The project is due to complete in August 2017 and provide thousands of education opportunities to the children of Gaza, opening in densely populated areas, where many children do not have access to school.
