About the project
El-Ma’amuniya High School is the main girls’ high school in east Jerusalem. The school serves 2,000 students in its four-building facility in Wadi el-Joz. The Jerusalem Foundation has supported the purchase of equipment for the school at various times over the years, beginning in 1973, with the purchase of sewing machines. It provided equipment for the school’s secretarial studies program in 1992 and equipped a science laboratory in 1996, including equipment for experiments, a television, video, slide projector and screen, human body models and scientific literature. The project was one of seven science labs equipped in Arab schools (five of them all-girls schools) by the Foundation in 1996-97.
