On International Youth Day Volunteers Distribute School Supplies to Children in Jenin Camp
It is worth noting that Jenin Camp has one of the highest unemployment and poverty rates among West Bank refugee camps, contributing to higher dropout rates among younger children. UNDP’s Productive Families Economic Empowerment Programme (DEEP) supported the establishment and development of the sewing centre at the camp, under the umbrella of the “Not to Forget” Association, to produce educational games for nurseries and kindergartens from recycled fabrics and materials and market them. More than 15 women headed households were supported throughout the project.
