Child Development Program

The child development program started in a donated space in Budrus with the establishment of a library housing over 1000 books. Soon after, a second library was established in the village of Qibya. In addition to availing books to children, the libraries hold regular child literature, creative arts and academic support sessions. Ruwwad’s team and the scholars provide periodic psychosocial support to children suffering from the various effects of poverty, marginalization and the Israeli occupation.

During the summer, camps serving over 100 children take place, some in collaboration with other institutions. The camps offer diverse activities, including literature and sports.
