Children's projects


Never Stop Dreaming Centre

The majority of Sheffield PSC money goes to the projects linked to by the menu items on the left.

The idea behind the children's projects started back in 1994 when Sheffield PSC received an appeal from the Union of Health Work Committees for support for the children's library project which they had started at “Al Asria” children centre in Jabalia Refugee camp. Jabalia is the biggest Palestinian refugee camp anywhere in the Middle East, with 120,000 refugees.

Around the same time, two members from Sheffield PSC and National PSC, Mike Rowson and Musheir El-Farra, visited a few children's centres in the Gaza Strip and nominated two other centres to be part of our fundraising activities for children in Palestine. Recently SPSC helped establish a new centre in Khan Younis called the Never Stop Dreaming Children's Centre.

We currently support three childrens' projects, and a mobile library, each project based in one of the many refugee camps which are found in the Gaza Strip. The four projects try to provide the children and young people who live in the camps with a safe place to play, socialise and to learn.
