Professor Elaydi  outlined the specific conditions of Gaza, which are unique.  Gaza is already a learning society with a range of formal provision in family and kindergarten projects, NGOs, schools and universities.  Informal provision includes unions, religious institutions and local government learning centers.  Yet the learning resources are grossly over stretched.  Gaza has a dense population and few natural resources, outside of the people of Gaza who attend 27 institutions of Higher Education.   

Learning takes place across different generations.  Children learn alongside parents and grandparents.  NGOs carry out human rights workshops in seminars on conflict and transformational justice.  Just months after the last siege in November 2012, Gaza needed some 200 new schools.  Provision and procedures constantly work across the barriers imposed on Gaza.
