On March 8th, 2015, students from the AMAL Network‘s English Access Micro-Scholarship Program visited Project Wadi Attir for a day of volunteering in the field.
Led by Nizar Egbaria, Director of the Visitor, Training and Education Center, students learned about concepts of sustainable development and environmental conservation and stewardship. Under the guidance of Ali Alhawashla, Director of the Medicinal Plants Initiative, they worked on the medicinal plants plot, cleaning, fertilizing and planting.
The students really enjoyed the volunteer work and asked to continue volunteering onsite during the school year.
The Access Program is operated by the Department of English and sponsored by the US Embassy. About 75% of participating students are 10th grade girls studying for their English levels. Participating interdisciplinary schools include Al Faroukh and Abu Rabiya in Kseifeh, Ha’Dkalim and Yigal Allon in Tel Sheva, and Rabin and Ahad in Hura.
