During the summer months the special education school in Al-Sa’diyya, The Charitable Childcare Association used money granted by FOJ to buy paints and paint supplies to paint playground equipment and classroom walls. Five vocational education students helped paint the newly installed playground equipment, giving them a sense of ownership and pride of their school. Two PCVs and two JICA volunteers helped paint the inside walls of our school white and then painted alphabet and number borders in each classroom. The project allowed us to make the school a more inviting place for students to return to in the new school year.
