Spotlight: Nadera Tannous

Helping Girls in Nazareth Build Better Lives

Nadera Tannous is the director of the NA’AMAT Technological School, a high school in Nazareth that helps Israeli Arab girls, who have previously struggled in school, become empowered and contributing members of society. The school prepares girls for college and also provides vocational training in a variety of careers. It has helped many girls, who might otherwise have been consigned to lives of poverty, to complete their education and to become independent. The school occupies a beautiful, multi-million dollar facility that was built in 2012 through a unique partnership between NA’AMAT USA, the Irwin Green family and Israel’s Ministry of Education. Along with modern classrooms, it features a Vocational Training Center and a gym. The school is planning to add culinary classes this fall.
