A video of the dancing girls of the kindergarten is on You Tube.

It is the first video made with the camera, that we we were able to buy thanks to our Dutch donors. It was filmed by Abed El Majid (Grade 8) and Jibreel (Grade 6).

We kept the hope alive!

Volume 6 - JEEL NEWS - Issue 8
December 23th 2013

To all friends of Jeel al Amal

Writing this annual Christmas Jeel News is an important reminder to us that you, our dear friend, have been and continue to be an important formative contribution to our lives, the children and everybody at Jeel Al Amal.

We kept the Hope alive in 2013
Despite the difficult situation in our country and the challenges we encounter on a daily basis, we manage to keep the smiles on the faces of our children, who have been subjected to deplorable conditions no child should have to endure.

“Keeping the hope alive and never despairing” has been and continues to be the motto of Jeel Al Amal. It gives us so much pride to hear the comments coming from our friends while visiting: “We can see that your children are happy from the smiles on their faces”. This is after all our ultimate goal.

Renovating the home and the school
I wish everybody could see the smiles on the faces of our children when we replaced the old broken desks into a new colourful ones. They were received with so much joy! We still hope to provide for the remaining two classes.

The milk project - a glass of milk is given to each child in the morning and milk choco in the afternoon.

Smart interactive boards are a great tool to help the teachers explain the lessons with animation and sound. It is such a great way to make the lesson enjoyable for the children as they get the chance to see and listen and interact.

The playground and a dream come true for our children. They received the news with great joy and BIG smiles. The long awaited innovations have finally taken place and the children can now enjoy and most important play safely.

“Me and my book”
“Me and my book” is a year round competition where the children would exchange and read books amongst themselves. Ultimately, there is a competition and six winners announced. Jeel Al Amal was the first winner.

Other activities are edited in Jeel News 2013. See the index.

Love makes us more humane
My mother Alice Sahhar used to say and I quote:

“I often think
that people we have loved
and who have loved us
not only make us more humane
but they become part of us
and we carry them always in our hearts
wether we see them or not
and in some way we are a sum total
of those who haved loved us
and those whom we appreciate a lot”.

There is hope - and that hope is YOU.

We are grateful to you
for making the ‘good news’
real and personal to us
in a world too full of bad news.

Merry Christmas.
