Child Centres in Gaza

Donation : /
IDRF in partnership with the A. M. Qattan Foundation (AMQF) are continuing to provide 7,600 children and youth with the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of structured educational programming at the Child Center in Gaza.

Education lies at the core of the 2030 agenda for sustainable development. Under this agenda, education is identified as the fourth global priority reaffirming inclusive, equitable and quality education for all. In Gaza, access to quality education in a safe, child-friendly environment is challenged by economic, political and social barriers. In addition to these barriers, low academic achievement is attributed to poor quality education administered in schools and limited availability of tailored learning opportunities. With such poor conditions, retention rates in schools across Gaza continue to fluctuate. Additional challenges in Gaza overwhelmingly include high poverty rates, inadequate living conditions and ongoing power outages.
