Al Shmoah Kindergarten

Who are we? What are we doing? Since September 2015 the Al-Shmoah Kindergarden, with about 25 children, is working under minimum conditions. Hanan,Wejdan and Rawan started the project responding to the needs of the villages surrounding Alma'sara village, between Bethlehem and Hebron. Right now the children are running out of games, toys, they don't have properly furniture and the young mothers are in need of training and economical support in order to continue the education project. Early in the morning, from Sunday to Thursday, the children go to Al Shmoah center, normally until midday. The volunteers of the center work, play and teach with them with toys, plays and all kind of school supplies that sometimes are brought by the children and, most of the time, by the volunteers. From French and English lessons to all kind of didactic games the children spend their days learning.

The inhabitants of Alma’sara, who made the choice of nonviolence resistance against the occupation, know that their children will be able to reach peace with knowledge, culture, the cultivation of their potentialities and resources. Al Shmoah started its activities in 2001 as cultural center but acted also as first clinic of the area, with awareness courses on health of men and women, as aggregation center, serving as center for gathering food and clothes for the poorest in the community, as place of formation and recreation for youth and students (chess club, language school, internet access for students and inhabitants of the villages). The center has four goals to improve the life of the surrounding villages: Health, Information, Education, Recreation.

In the past years the community individuated as most urgent need to have a kindergarten. Until now it could not be realized but finally the time has come.Hanan and Wejdan, two young mothers in addition to Rawan, helped by the community, started in September, without funding and as volunteers, to open the door of the Center to the children who wanted to come, so to relieve their mothers who could gain a little time to dedicate to go back to study, to work, to recreate themselves, thus increasing their empowerment. Since September 1, the community needed kindergarten started to be realized. The children play, sing, they are instructed in the first education steps. But all this can't be done anymore without properly materials, infrastructure, school supplies and trained persons.
