The European Union and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) handed over the Abdullah Ben Zouber School to the Zawya West Municipality. The school building has undergone a substantial renovation financed under the EU’s “Baladiyati” programme and implemented by UNDP’s “Resilience4Libya” project.

The US $200,000 – worth renovation project included essential rehabilitation to the existing building as well as the addition of four classrooms and six restrooms to improve the quality of the learning environment and increase capacity for activities to retake place in the school.

The renovation was completed as part of “Strengthening Local Capacities for Resilience and Recovery-Resilience4Libya” (SLCRR) project funded by the EU under the framework of the “Recovery, Stability and Socio-Economic Development in Libya – Baladiyati” programme.

“Recovery, Stability and socio-economic development in Libya” supports the capacities of local public authorities and administrations in providing basic services – health, education, water and sanitation as well as social services – while improving timely and quality access to these services, in particular for the most vulnerable people in 24 Libyan municipalities.
