Sansana (Meitar Crossing), South Hebron Hills
9:30 a.m. – 13:00 p.m.
Meitar border point: Crowded in the exit direction from Israel to the occupied territories. We have already written about the heavy traffic in Saturdays, mainly towards Daharia.
Road 317: Military observations in cross roads. Also at the Tawuani- Yata pass, on the Yata side. The big brother eye on Saturdays.
Visit in the Hashem el Darage kindergarten: At the beginning of the visit, the kindergarten environment was viewed, including the classroom and the courtyard. There was a discussion about the importance of having an interesting and attractive classroom, and the need for appropriate drawings. As for the kindergarten yard, the existing games are not safe and pose a real danger for the playing children. Zasa has previously banned using these games in the yard.
The meeting was with Huda and Khaula. The teachers complained about the lack of stationery and necessary materials to help them perform the work and the inability to purchase these materials. During the meeting, Zada trained the teachers in using teaching strategy of learning by doing, playing, and drama, and emphasized the need to monitor their progress in mastering basic life skills. There was a discussion of the children's evaluation scale, and the first semester plan was discussed as well. It was agreed with Khaula that she will photograph the children’s activities in the kindergarten and send them through the WhatsApp application to view them.
Fatima has contacted a donator woman in order to provide jackets and coats for all students and teachers. Fatima will join her in Hebron in order to actually purchase the coats next. The intention is to distribute the coats soon.
Umm-el-Khair: On our way back we stopped in the Umm al-Khair kindergarten. The teacher, Dalal, is ready to open the kindergarten, and she will work on arranging the furniture and collecting students. Hopefully, Hamed from the Villages group has raised enough funds in order to pay her salary. Currently there are 8 children, most of them under 4 years old.
