Please join us Tuesday, April 11th at 7:15-8:45 pm on Zoom for a special joint meeting of the BWC IPC Palestine Solidarity Committee and the Jewish Muslim Solidarity Committee! We’ll be hearing about 1for3.org‘s exciting plans to expand early childhood education in the UN-run Aida Refugee Camp in Bethlehem, Palestine.
The Boston Workers Circle has had a long relationship with 1for3.org, a Massachusetts-based non-profit that focuses on four primary challenges in the lives of Palestinian refugees: Water – Food – Health – Education. In past years, BWC has participated in 1for3’s Walk for Water, raising money and awareness about the critical impact of the occupation on the need for water and the inequitable distribution of water in Israel/Palestine.
Right now our friends are asking us to support early childhood education in the Aida Camp by fundraising for the Expansion of the Zahrat Al-Yasmeen Kindergarten. Nidal Al-Azraq, executive director of 1for3, and Katherine Hanna, founder of the kindergarten program, will join us to share more about their plans to add a third classroom. We’ll learn about the kindergarten’s innovative inclusive, play-based and trauma-informed curriculum, which provides a space “where children can be children” and find joy, hope, and healing amidst the harshness of the occupation.
So please, come listen, learn, and help BWC support this important and wonderful effort!
