Organisation: Middle East Children's Institute (MECI)
Country: United States
MECI is a community development programs based on three pillars: comprehensive after school education; women's empowerment; and comunity economic development. We operate in the West Bank where we have an MoU with the Ministry of Education and in Al Salt Jordan north of Amman.
In the West Bank, our program includes a healthy nutrious meal and snacks, prepared by a local women's association and all food products are purchased in the local village. Our school program has become a source of education on health issues affecting children and women.
We are looking for funding sources to expand our work in the region for more boys and girls.
