Yesterday was opening day here at al-waHa and everyone is excited about the coming weeks. Just like traveling to a foreign country, villagers must go through customs here at al-waHa.

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

that video. In the meantime, please enjoy these videos.
