Improving the conditions of access to primary and secondary education in the area of Jericho

In the Palestinian Territories currently 40% of the population is at school age. Offering a quality education, however, is difficult due to low investment in infrastructure for schools in the West Bank and the high demand for places in school.

In this context, the Custody of the Holy Land has proposed to equip a new building with three floors in the newly built school of Jericho to continue its academic work, ensuring a quality education for the 493 current students at the school. At the same time, the new building  increased the number of places in school, to serve an estimated 850 students.
