THE ASSOCIATION FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF WOMENS STATUS, LAKIA

Educational Activities for the Community

The Association for the Improvement of the Status of Women, Lakia has always been responsive to the needs of the Bedouin community and mobilized to meet these needs.  Every summer, with the help of the participants in our youth leadership programs, we run a summer camp for children from Lakia.
The poor educational achievements of Bedouin children in Lakia and their inability to afford expensive private tutoring were the stimulus for the creation of our educational projects.  We recognize the importance of English as a universal language and a stepping stone for higher education by providing three different levels of English classes under the supervision of an experienced teacher. Working with the Lakia schools to identify pupils who will benefit from English enrichment classes, pupils in our program have made significant progress in their studies.  In addition, the Association provides tutoring for high school students planning to take the difficult matriculation exams in mathematics.
