Accomplishment:

 

1.      “Educational Empowerment Project” - The project has been running since 2006, the purpose of the project is preventing Bedouin students from dropping out of Taibeh schools, with the help of aid lessons in Arabic, Hebrew, English, math, enrichment workshops in inter- personal communication, enrichment workshops to boost confidence among the students and more. The number of participants in the project is growing significantly, and due to the success, parents in the Bedouin neighborhood are asking to register their children. Our tests indicate that the students have shown significant progress in Arabic, Hebrew, English and Mathematics, and testimonies from teachers in schools in Taibe indicate that students participate during classes, ask questions and  present learning problems, which points to a remarkable change among the students. In light of the success of this project, we are expanding the educational activities to Kalansawah near Taibeh and other Arab villages in Israel.

2.      “Computer and inter Center Project” - Recently, the association was able to establish a Computer and Internet center that includes 15 workstations connected to the Internet. Bedouin students can come at their leisure and use the computer and find materials on the Internet free of charge.

3.      “Technological Empowerment Project” - The project started this year in conjunction with Cisco (It should be noted that the instructor was trained at Cisco for this purpose). The purpose of the project is the technological empowerment of Bedouin students who have no familiarity with the PC. Approximately 20 participants are part of the project, they receive lessons in introduction to computers, assembly and disassembly of the computer, computer repair, computer project construction and more. Each participant in the project will receive an official certificate from Cisco that qualifies him/her to work in computer repair.
