Al Naqab Centre

Since 2014, HOPING has sponsored the core running costs of Al Naqab Centre in Burj el Barajneh. The centre was set up by a group of young Palestinian volunteers wanting a safe place where refugee children could enjoy arts, sports and education activities throughout the year.  Alongside extra lessons in Arabic, English, Maths and Science, the centre teaches the children Palestinian history and culture, dance and music. The centre has a thriving football team, and during the summer months the volunteers take the children on recreational trips to the river.
