Education
Our students are among the most highly educated in the region. Since the 1960s, girls have made up around half of UNRWA students.

School Based Teacher Development programme (SBTD)

School Based Teacher Development programme (SBTD)- Transforming Classroom Practices (TCP) is a key dimension of UNRWA’s Education Reform Strategy. The programme seeks to improve teaching and learning practices in the UNRWA classroom through developing interactive pedagogies or ways of teaching that will engage children more effectively in their learning. The SBTD is paving the way for comprehensive in-service training for all UNRWA teachers.

11-year-old Saja, from the area of Sha’af in the eastern side of Gaza City, thinks about the difficult times she had last year when school commenced after the 2014 conflict. She remembers trying to finish her homework by the dim lights during consistent electricity cuts. Since 2006, the Gaza Strip has been plagued by a chronic electricity crisis with rolling blackouts that last between 12 to 16 hours per day that heavily affect the most populated areas. © 2015 UNRWA Photo by Ahmad Awad
