Two weeks ago, one of the credit classes presented their project, which was designing a city. I apologize for taking so long to post the videos of it, but please enjoy them!

Closing Day

Published: August 15, 2015

Yesterday was unfortunately the last full day of Al-Waha. Today, even more unfortunately, we had to say goodbye to all the amazing villagers we’ve had this session. Although the majority of the villagers left on
the buses, there were still quite a few who attended the closing program with their families. The three remaining credit villagers put on a wonderful Sinbad skit for the parents, and then the two-week moghamarat
presented their projects. We had three videos projects, one project which involved making signs for the site, and one that involved making a bench. We also watched some of a video that one of the ikstishaf
(explorations) made, which was Mission Impossible themed. We’ve had some difficulties with one of the two-week video projects, so while I won’t be able to upload that today, keep checking in the next few days for
that video. In the meantime, please enjoy these videos.

We can’t wait to see all of the amazing things that they have been able to accomplish!      For our evening program, al-waHa hosted a camel auction, during which...
