The activities are offered as part of a project being implemented by the PCC to provide psycho-social support for the population of Beit Skariya, a village in the district of Bethlehem that faces particular hardship as a result of the occupation, including lack of basic services and close proximity to numerous illegal Israeli settlements. The project is supported by the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Palestinian NGO Development Center (NDC).
