Christian Education in Palestine

Some of the problems faced by staff & students:
- Closures in West Bank limits the variety/standard of education available. Parents and children can't necessarily choose where to study.
- Don't have the money to fund the best education - whether its resources or the ability to go on to higher education.
- Difficult to plan ahead because you never know how the political situation may change. Will the security situation affect the school? Will there be strikes? Will staff be paid?

Even within our group this is a problem. Ra'ed - a 17yr old Palestinian - had to move from Jerusalem to Ramallah for his education, yet still he's not getting the level/standard of education that he deserves.
