This school is special. It’s goal is to empower young women and girls by ensuring an excellent education and a strong connection with their heritage. Formerly the school had been a home belonging to the family of Ms. Hind Al-Husseini, who offered it as a shelter (then later as a school) for the orphaned children of Palestinian families killed in the Deir Yassin massacre. She was deeply involved and instrumental in its success. Today it is a private school for girls which houses a Palestinian Heritage Museum to help foster Palestinian culture and identity. I photographed the grounds for a building/playground project proposal which needed funding and had the great pleasure of meeting some of the students, and two of it’s administrators. The children were quite adorable.
