On May 15, 2015, Lajee Center had its sixth annual Kite Festival commemorating the 67th anniversary of the Nakba (the catastrophe).
In a tiny and vastly overcrowded space, measuring less than 200 metres by 400 metres, nearly 5,000 Palestinian refugees live in Aida Refugee Camp. The Israeli Apartheid Wall surrounds the camp, as do six Israeli military watchtowers, and the camp suffers from ongoing and regular invasions by the Israeli forces.
Lajee Center is a hub of activity throughout the week with ongoing projects running continually throughout the year, to provide recreational and educational pursuits for all children and youth in the community. The Center recognises the necessity to focus on youth, to give them the opportunity to speak, to critically think and to share.
