New Project Serves Special Needs

Holy Land Garden

 

We started a  new project named Holy Land Gardens!  This project is agriculturally based and creates a training facility for individuals with special needs. We are in the beginning phase of relocating the greenhouse due to a unique set of circumstances.  Since we are in the middle of the prime agricultural season, we hope to use the greenhouse now in a nursery setting.

 

A Life Changed

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Two months ago, we started our carpentry workshop for boys. This course will offer one year of training. We had 14 students for this year. *Milad is our oldest student. He is 17 years old and he joined our program this month. He said, "I don’t go to school, and I have nothing to do. I go around searching for work, but no one wants to hire me. I have lost hope. Life is very unfair.” I looked at his face and noticed his deep pain.

Opening a New World of Computers

House of Ruth, Jordan

 

Computer class

 

Approaching the end of this course, the teacher is seeing great progress in his students’ skills using the computer. As usual, he focuses on students who do not own a computer or have never used the computer at all before.

In this group, there are many students who have not used a computer. For Laith, the teacher, it's a joy to see them happy as they are learning new things and enjoying their time in the classroom.
