Hello friends of PfP,
Please enjoy these pictures of the Lajee Center’s PfP playground that is being built thanks to your support, our friends at the Lajee Center, andplayground architect Sam Kornhauser, who has generously donated his time and expertise to PfP.
Lajee Center (‘lajee’ means ‘refugee’ in Arabic), was established in Aida Refugee Camp in April 2000 by a group of 11 young people from the Camp who wanted to serve the community. Lajee is a community-based grassroots creative cultural centre that works with new generations of Palestinians as they continue their ongoing struggle for justice and rights for Palestine and all Palestinians.
The main aim of the center is to provide refugee youth with cultural, educational, social and developmental opportunities. Its programs are designed in response to the particular needs of the community and the skills and abilities of its members, whilst always remaining in full support and defense of all Palestinian rights.
Thank you to our donors who help make community gardens andplaygrounds a reality for Palestinian children living under military occupation!
