Qattan Centre for the child – Fondation Qattan, Gaza

Most of Gaza’s children face extremely arduous and difficult circumstances that severely affect their daily lives, and often prevent them from pursuing any meaningful process of individual self-development.

On a piece of land generously contributed by the city’s municipality, the Foundation Qattan thus began building the Qattan Centre for the Child in Gaza City, an independent children’s library and information centre aimed at improving the cultural, social, educational, recreational and psychological environment for a large section of the Gaza Strip’s child population, without social, physical, religious, sexual or racial discrimination.

The Centre aims to achieve its goals through a first-class library and information service for children up to the age of 15, as well as to their parents, carers and teachers.

92.000 books are available in this library and we also find multimedia tools, several resources and services online as well as thematic workshops organization.  These services are completed by a mobile library which serves youth social and educational centers and proposes basically librarian training.
