Qatar Charity (QC) has started the construction and furnishing of six classrooms in the Fahd Al-Sabah School in Gaza, to benefit more than 240 female students.
The 350sq m project, valued at QR 781,500, is a part of QC’s educational development projects implemented in the Gaza Strip. It will contribute to reducing overcrowding in classrooms of the school, increasing literacy rates, and providing an appropriate learning environment for students.
Earlier this year, QC opened the Al-Shaimaa Secondary School for Girls in Beit Lahia, north of the Gaza Strip, in co-operation with the Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education. The school was built at a total cost of QR5.4mn, with financial support from ‘Qatar Cyclists’ Club and several Qatari companies.
Last year, QC opened the Kamal Al-Ahoud Primary School in Gaza to benefit 600 students in a remote area.
It is worth mentioning that QC works on supporting the Palestinian education sector along with its other sectors. It has worked on rehabilitating the scientific laboratories of public schools, in addition to providing alternative energy to 60 schools, in light of the continuous power cuts in the Gaza Strip.
