Friends of the Earth Middle East

King's Academy has established a partnership with Friends of the Earth Middle East (FoEME), an Israeli-Jordanian-Palestinian grassroots NGO that works on trans-boundary environmental issues to extend the Good Neighbors Water Project to youth in proximity to the lower Jordan River. 

In coordination with their peers at schools in Israel and Palestine, 30 King's Academy students work over a two-year period on a program addressing household and agricultural water usage as well as water pollution and conservation in the region. 

Students have worked with environmental professionals in Jordan and coordinated with their counterparts abroad through a series of workshops and a bi-monthly environmental leadership program that culminated in a documentary on the project.
