With every hoodie YOU purchase, KENZA will give a hoodie to a person living in the Gaza Camp.
The Gaza Camp is the poorest among the ten Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan.
KENZA does not believe in charity, but rather self-development. Instead of simply giving a hoodie out, the KENZA store will be exclusively open in the SEP Building of the Gaza Camp. The store will give everyone the chance to choose what hoodie they want instead of restricting them to one “donated hoodie.”

Our grade 6 science class students created a city using structures that are similar in function to the organelles of the cell. In doing so, students were able to demonstrate their understanding of how these organelles worked interdependently to help the cell survive much like a city!

Visiting students from The Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio, USA, performed classical and jazz music for the first time in our new theater. They also worked with some of our music classes. It is our hope that they have inspired our young musicians to keep practicing and... Read More
