PfP Builds Amphitheater at Mashjar Juthour

PfP is proud and excited to partner with Mashjar Juthour, “a natural reserve that provides much needed space for cultivating the trees of Palestine while also reminding our community of our very basic and necessary relationship to nature.”

The land encompasses a large hill called Juthour, meaning roots, and it is through this space that the community is invited “to remember that we are a people of this land and our relationship to trees must become a more important part of today and our future.”

PfP is sponsoring ongoing workshops that aim to connect children with local flora and to impart indigenous botanical knowledge. We also funded the construction of an amphitheater, which was recently showcased on Opening Day, with special family activities such as storytelling with well-known writer Maya Abu Al-Hayyat and performances by the vibrant dabke troupe Palestine Ambassadors. Other activities included rock painting, nature games, hiking, bread-making, and much more.

Opening Day at Mashjar Juthour also commemorated World Environment Day. Activities varied, encompassing workshops on recycling with the creative trainer, Ala Al-Baba, and a worshop on rock painting with the passionate volunteers, Fares and Layan.

Thank you to Mashjar Juthour and all their supporters for this wonderful and important project!
