Around a decade ago a door opened to establish a kindergarten in an unrecognised Bedouin village in the Negev. This began as a project to provide educational support for young children but since 2013 the focus has broadened to include work aimed at helping families. This change of focus was a consequence of building trust with the tribe and getting to know some of the families personally. As a result of these strengthening relationships we then decided that our primary focus should be to help the pillars of the family: the women, who are often neglected and wounded. The pioneer project amongst them has been to offer Hebrew, Arabic and English lessons, with the assistance of local government. Our aim with these ladies is to offer opportunities to develop their self-worth.
