A New Preschool Opens in Till


The new preschool Anera built in Till, Palestine

Anera’s preschools are designed especially with young people in mind. They are bright and airy. They have large outdoor areas with safe, fun playgrounds. And they are filled with custom, child-sized furniture and fun learning materials.

September 3, 2020 | Nablus – Anera is pleased to announce that today we opened the Ghaith and Nadia Sukhtian Preschool in Till, Palestine. It is the fourth preschool in Palestine that Anera has built with funding from the Ghiath and Nadia Sukhtian Foundation. On Monday, September 7, 2020, 75 preschoolers will be coming to their brand new school.

In spite of the COVID-19 crisis and its accompanying delays in the construction work, the Anera early childhood development team worked hard, and safely, with contractors and suppliers to ensure the school was ready for the new scholastic year.

Till village, home of current Palestinian Prime Minister, is a poor rural community whose residents depend on seasonal agricultural and construction work. There are no other public and free preschools in the village.

This school is the tenth preschool Anera has built in recent years. We will be constructing three more in the coming months, which will be ready for the 2021 academic year. Anera has also renovated more than 200 charitable preschools through our early childhood development program in the past 10 years. And, we have trained 1,000 teachers and 15,000 children, who continue to benefit annually.
