Dhaher Al Abed, Jenin Governorate
“The [old] school was only two rooms. There weren’t any bathrooms. There was no playground for you to relax… I am proud of this new school. That it was built.”
—Wasim Ala Omar Kamal Amarni, 14 years, a young student from Dhaher Al Abed
As Wassim explains, the fact that Global Communities/CHF, with funding and critical support from USAID, was able to build a new co-ed primary and secondary school in Dhaher Al-Abed, a small village 30 kilometers southwest of Jenin City, is indeed something to be proud of.
