Project manager – Educational center (H/F)
Palestinian territories
Bethany

CONTEXT

IECD (Institut Européen de Coopération et Développement), is a French development organization operating in the field of international solidarity. Since 1988, it fosters economic and social development in 15 emerging countries. Thirty years of experience have enabled IECD to develop a strong know-how in technical and vocational training, support to small businesses and access to education and health for the most vulnerable.

IECD is operating in the Palestinian Territories since 2007. In a context both economically and socially constrained, IECD has focused its action on the East-Jerusalem region. To address the priorities of populations and families, 3 projects are implemented from Bethany: Al Hamawi educational center, a Micro and Small Entreprises program, and the Seeds oh Hope program.

Al Hamawi educational center: a vibrant environment seeding hope for the youth of Bethany and its surroundings

Traditionally integrated to Jerusalem, the city of Bethany has been brutally cut from it with the construction of the separation wall in 2003. In addition to its impact on the population’s daily life, this context has increased inequalities of access to education, and weakens the situation of a number of students within the educational system. On the short term, this situation fosters dropouts while on the longer term, it puts in jeopardy the capacity of these future adults to integrate on the job market and become responsible actors in their society.

In January 2012, IECD created an educational center in Bethany, 4 kilometers East of Jerusalem, to create a stimulating and pacified learning environment for teenagers of Bethany and its surroundings, offering academic, extracurricular and life skills’ activities.

The project promotes the comprehensive development of teenagers through:

1. Remedial classes focusing on academic skills (Arabic, mathematics and English), and life skills
2. A vocational guidance program offering access to professionals and reinforcing skills in sciences and English
3. Extracurricular and recreational activities, including weekly activities and recreational camps
