“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
“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.
“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.
“The Distribution of used Computers Project” - six months ago, the Association for education
and health promotion began to collect used computers from Hi -Tech companies in
Israel. We've collected about 40 computers and
distributed them on to students who are studying as part of our projects, and it
made parents support the educational activities of the association.

and raise its awareness about its rights both from the local authority and state
institutions. In the past year the association helped more than 90 Bedouins in
filling forms for the National Insurance Institute. it is worth notable that the
project began in a non-organized voluntary initiative. Recently we were asked by
the Netherlands Embassy in
Israel to propose a project for support in the
field of Advocacy. The action plan of the project is to fight for the right to
build a kindergarten and a growing school in the Bedouin community and the
cultivation of Bedouin community in Taibe.

books that we received lately.
