They have learned to deal with fire extinguishing and first aid, earthquake evacuations and drowning accidents: Over 11,000 Palestinian students from 577 schools have attended an EU-supported Civil Protection Training programme in the Occupied Palestinian Territory.

This is part of a series of features on projects funded by the EU’s Regional Programme, prepared by journalists and photographers on the ground or the ENPI Info Centre. (ENPI Info Centre)
