Preschool in Shejaiya, Gaza Gets Rebuilt
Description: The Shejaiya neighborhood in Gaza City was one of the areas worst affected by the war on Gaza in 2014. The few preschools that existed in Shejaiya prior to the war were all destroyed. Children in Gaza need safe places to learn and play, so ANERA decided to embark on the establishment of a new preschool. With support from our donors and Islamic Relief USA, ANERA built five classrooms, a modern playground and water fountains. The school will serve as a center of learning for some 100 children this year, and all of their teachers will be trained and mentored through ANERA's early childhood development program.
