I am Mona Jalamnh, the founder and organiser of the ALTafawk learning center, an English and Math teacher, a Jenin Camp born refugee.

I opened the center in 2010 as a place where children of the refugee camp could come and learn English, Arabic and Science. After all the devastation that had taken place in the camp it became of absolute necessity to establish a place that would provide the young ones with education, safety and care. In the early beginings of the center I had started with 5 pupils, currently we teach 73, their age variating from 4 to 18 years. I started on my own, now there are 5 local volunteers working with me, however we remain understaffed and in need of volunteers from all parts of the world joining our team.
