Bardala School


Between 2011 and 2013 DSMT worked in partnership with US charity ANERA, Bardala School and the Ministry of Education and Higher Education to help improve facilities at this government funded school in the north of the Jordan Valley.

Laboratory furniture and science equipment, computers and books were provided in 2011, then laptops, projectors and screens in five more classrooms in 2012-13, to support teaching across the curriculum. These developments aligned with the Ministry of Education’s plans for extending the effective use of technology in education in this area of the West Bank.

“Thank you to DSMT for the support you have given Bardala School. We are now making plans to help other schools in the Tubas region in the same way.” Ministry of Education, September 2013

I was really impressed by the way the laptops and overhead projectors are being used. They really brought alive one physics lesson, where the teacher had down-loaded examples of hydro-electric power stations and moving diagrams to explain the theory. We also saw them being used for the teaching of the Koran, English and maths. The programme has been so successful that the Ministry of Education are hoping to roll it out further in other schools.” DSMT Chair, monitoring visit report, September 2013

DSMT gratefully acknowledges the generous contribution of Abraaj Capital to both phases of this project, and the invaluable  help and advice of our partner ANERA Jerusalem for administering the project on our behalf.
