13-year-old Fajr Hmaid takes up the role of a teacher amid pandemic

In a wooden shack in the Gaza Strip, a 13-year-old girl holds classes for neighborhood children who have missed out on their studies since schools were closed in March due to the novel coronavirus crisis.

Only 20 people have tested positive for the virus in the Hamas, a Palestinian enclave, where cross-border traffic has long been limited by Israel and Egypt and those entering Gaza in recent months have gone into quarantine.

Fajr Hmaid, who hopes to become a professional teacher one day, provides English, Arabic and math lessons to a class that has grown from four pupils to 15.”I wanted to bring them here and teach them, this is my talent,” Hmaid said.

“I have one girl in first grade. If she is absent from school for a period of time, she will forget how to grab the pen and how to write.”
