A series of generous gifts from the Shaheen Charitable Trust has allowed a renovation project at AEES, delayed by the pandemic, to finally begin.
The project, set to be completed by the end of the 2021, will provide additional classrooms and create new labs for technology and science instruction at the secondary level.
The new space will be named in honor of Ramallah native, Mr. Aziz Shaheen, who is the father of AFEDJ supporter Mr. Shouky Shaheen of Atlanta.
Founded in 1954 as a home for impoverished and orphaned girls, AEES has evolved into a K-12 academic co-ed school serving 845 students and their families.
In late July Archbishop Hosam Naoum joined AEES Headmaster Iyad Rafidi to check out the progress at the construction site.
