Demo Erasmus+ Project

Hope Kindergarten

This research is based on a case study of Bedouin parents from unrecognized villages in the Naqab desert who experience dispossession, severe structural oppression and cultural transition in the midst of an ongoing political conflict. The study provides an opportunity to witness processes of change. A group of mothers decided to take action, and initiated a community-managed kindergarten called ‘Hope’, that allows their children to play in a safe place. Supported by their husbands, the mothers invited Arab-Israeli parliament members, journalists and NGO directors to visit the kindergarten in order to raise attention to their children’s needs. These initiatives have been proves successful, as authorities have decided to provide transportation for the children (ages 4-5) from unrecognized villages to a governmental kindergarten in a nearby recognized village. Parents continue to support the ‘Hope’ initiative to keep their children out of danger.
