Give a Little Light, Give a Little Love!
Our third pallet of 1,920 solar-powered Luci Lights has reached children in Rafah, Gaza thanks to the help of the Women's Project Center - Rafah! With your help, students can study for their exams, and little ones need not be afraid when the power goes out each night. We're raising funds to send the 4th pallet!
Help build momentum to send a pallet each month! Please click the pink button at the upper right of your screen to Start a Campaign.
Here's what Rebuilding Alliance does:
We've been working in partnership with Gaza Non-Governmental Organizations since 2013, when the American, Rachel Corrie, was killed as she stood to protect a Palestinian family's home from demolition. Building on our successful work to send desperately needed supplies to UNRWA shelter schools in Gaza during the bombing in 2014, we sent our first container with donated clothing (our shop filled from floor to ceiling) later that year. We successfully sent our 2nd container, this one with new schools supplies and children's books, in 2015 and delivered them directly to children from 16 schools in the hardest hit areas in Northern Gaza. We could not have done it without you! Now we move forward with raising funds to send solar-powered lanterns so children can do their homework when the lights are out!
Rebuilding to Remain
This is our signature project. We provide village-centered design and crowd-funded finance to help Palestinian villages in Area C build new, affordable homes on the land they own. We've finished the first three homes in Al Aqaba Village and the families have moved in. Next step: pressing forward with our application for Political Risk Insurance.
ibn Rush'd Library & Entrepreneurship Program for Youth
Rebuilding Alliance helped Al Aqaba Village install its library, hire the librarian, and organize a Youth Entrepreneurship program there.
Rural Women's Center
We're working with the Al Aqaba Rural Women's Association to help them achieve their income-producing goals. With a grant from Rebuilding Alliance, architect Danna Masad has designed the Rural Women's Restaurant, Guest House, and Wedding Hall — all green design! Next step: filing applications for Political Risk Insurance then raising the financing to start building!
U.S. Movement to Save Palestinian Villages
This past year, Rebuilding Alliance sponsored four speaking tours, held over 50 half hour meetings with congressional staffers, and held two formal briefings in the House and Senate.
Collective Song: A Music Center to Make Hearts Sing
A talented intern at Rebuilding Alliance sought to bring music to Al Aqaba's children. We are delighted to report that the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music is partnering with Rebuilding Alliance and has been sending two teachers there to instruct 41 children on violin, viola, and cello! Can we bring them on tour to the U.S.? We hope so.
Abir's Garden Playgrounds: a Safe Place to Grow
We partner with Combatants for Peace to build playgrounds and organize children's theatre programs in memory of a child, Abir Aramin, who touched so many hearts. The playgrounds, all connected with a Palestinian school in the West Bank, are constructed by professionals with Israeli and Palestinian former combatants working together to help.
