Arad Community Forging Ahead

In recent weeks there has been a lot of activity in the Arad Sudanese Community. As Garin Tzedek finishes construction on the new Community Center in Arad's industrial district English Classes have already begun for elementary school students, taught by Garin Tzedek members. Three days a week Yearcoursers spend an hour of their evening teaching the ABC's, reading, grammar, and vocabulary to 25 Sudanese Children. So far the program has been a great success and we hope to expand it in the near future.

In addition to the Childrens classes and the aduly classes soon to follow in the new center the Garin has been working on a number of other projects. We will be painting murals around Arad with Sudanese volunteers and are openning a clinic in December to deal with minor illnesses, first aid, and pregnancy and neo-natal health and education. Donations have begun to arrive, but we still need your help. Our goal is to have 3,000 NIS, or about $800 by December to pay for two months rent on a new daycare building. Look for pictures from all of our new projects soon and keep following, donating, fundraising, but most importantly TELLING YOUR FRIENDS about the Garin.

Shavua Tov, Noah
