Druze school grateful for new computer room

The Christian Embassy has always sought to reach out to all the different people groups in the Land of Israel – whether Jewish, Arab, Christian, Muslim, Bedouin or Druze. In February, an ICEJ leadership delegation visited a special project in the Upper Galilee which we undertook at the request of a Druze welfare society. Over the past decade, we have partnered with this charity by sponsoring several youth-oriented educational projects, including a school library, a music room, and a high school robotics team that won a nation-wide competition. This time, we dedicated a new computer room with two dozen computer work stations, located in a mixed high school for Christian, Druze and Muslim students.

Upon arrival we were treated with utmost respect, as if we were royal dignitaries. Besides all the students and faculty, the local Druze mayor and regional council head also were waiting at the school to welcome our delegation. There were packed assemblies, speeches and musical performances, plus a bountiful lunch. It was truly impressive! We had a clear sense that this community does not take our gifts for granted. And our investment will bear fruit for years to come, giving these young minority citizens of Israel a better chance to succeed in this hi-tech nation.
