Belgium and the European Union celebrated the inauguration of 15 schools in Jerusalem, which have been rehabilitated and extended by Enabel. The celebration was attended by the Ministry of Education, the Jerusalem Directorate of Education, the schools’ principals and students, and representatives of the communities and civil society organizations.

The completion of the school retrofitting and expansion works were implemented by Enabel as part of the “Resilience of Schools of East Jerusalem” project, co-funded by Belgium and the European Union, in synergy with another EU-funded project: “Ta’lim Lil’Jami’a: Inclusive Education Intervention for East Jerusalem children”, implemented by the NGO Terre des Hommes – Italy.

“We are privileged to participate in this great event that will pave the road for 15 enhanced schools that will provide excellent learning opportunities and allow Palestinian children in Jerusalem to access quality inclusive education, innovation and technology.” Said EU Deputy Representative Maria Velasco.
