Fatima, Zada, Mohammad (report by Fatima)

9:30 a.m. – 13:00 p.m.
Saturday – many vehicles in the Meitar border point, in the exit direction, from Israel to the occupied territories. Heavier traffic than usual towards Daharia. Many Palestinian vehicles on Road 60. Life is stronger than any political situation.

Road 317: In Meitarim, a military jeep [arks on a hill, observing the whole region. Another jeep parks in the entrance to the every growing Avigail unauthorized settlement, and another one at the Tawuani- Yata pass, on the Yata side. The big brother eye is stronger on Saturdays. Almost no traffic on this road, as most settlements (unauthorized} on this road, are orthodox.   

Visit in the Hashem el Darage kindergarten:

Funds for teachers' salary payments come from donations, raised by the Villages Group association. Payments are managed by Hamed from Hebron. In his last visit, the teachers discussed with Hamed the bad condition of the playground, which needs to be repaired and improved. Some games are dangerous, and there is not enough sand to protect the children. On the next visit, Fatima will try to bring an expert that will observe the status of the playground and estimate the cost of its renovation.

The meeting with Huda and Haula centered on dealing with every day events, like olive harvesting, folklore and road safety, in the kindergarten program. Zada stressed the importance of having a variety of subject corners in the classroom, like "shop", "cooking", "medical" corners, etc. They discussed materials needed for activating such corners. Zada also reviewed the monitoring lists used by teachers to monitor the children skills, and provided feedback.

The teachers asked for necessary stationery, materials and tools, needed to implement the planned activities. In addition, Huda asked to provide them with English language books, because English is a prerequisite in schools.
