School for Environmental Awareness and Agriculture

Praktikum und Volunteering möglich
The school for environmental awareness and agriculture is a voluntary service held in the afternoons. Children and young people can participate in activities there and attend courses on nature and the environment, creating art from waste materials, plant growing and healthy eating. You can teach these subjects independently or with the local teachers at this school and conduct workshops.

Project Details

The school was founded in 1996 by the Israel Ministry of Education and has been growing ever since. The children attend school on a voluntary basis; and several children attend.
There are five teachers and five classes; there is a strong family feeling amongst the teachers and students. Subjects taught to children are on the environment of Israel, awareness for conservation, recycling, planting of fruits and vegetables, food production and nutrition. There are several greenhouses and outdoor gardens where vegetables and fruits are grown and that the students can take home. Further, the school has a small bakery where the students bake bread and Arabic Pizza every day, following traditional recipes.

The aim is that the children learn about the importance of environmental conservation, where the food that they get every day from supermarkets comes from, how it is produced and processed, and how to have a healthy nutrition.

Even though the school is highly popular and has close ties with the municipal primary schools, it is on a very tight budget, as it is not subsidized, but only financed through the contribution that every student pays, which is only 40 Shekel (around 8 €/12 USD) per year for 120 hours.

The school also has an art studio where rubbish is recycled into art.

Volunteers can assist the local teachers, but can also suggest their own topics and carry out their own projects with the children.
