The project is intended as a memorial to the 10 year old Abir that was killed by Israeli soldiers close to her school in Anata. Abir was the daughter of Bassam Aramin, one of the founders of Combatants for Peace. The Aramin family chose to turn their tragedy and despair into care, creativity, and teamwork in memory of their daughter Abir. The Abir’s Garden Project transformed her school in East Jerusalem, bringing former combatants from both sides together to build a playground that soon became the favorite gathering place for families. Now Combatants for Peace is expanding the project to the Si’ir Girls School, near Hebron with the help of their school community to build the next playground.
