AbstractThe assistance of UNESCO in favor of Palestinian Arab refugees began shortly after the General Conference in Beirut in 1948, with the opening of schools in tents in refugee camps. Indeed, among the Arab refugees living in tents in the desert in 1948, there were 200,000 children. In 1950, the joint education program UNESCO-UNRWA starts for Palestinian refugees children in the Near East. UNESCO then directs the department of Education, whereas UNRWA is responsible for its technical and vocational programs. This film was produced by students of the training course of Visual information of UNRWA. It shows the problem of education in refugee camps in Gaza and the work done in these schools: learning the alphabet in the sand, making a blackboard and school materials with rudimentary means, professional classes, literacy classes for adults, creation of school gardens or building a school in Gaza.
