Mount of Olives Sports Field

Leveled as a dirt football pitch in 1925, the southwest corner of the Mount of Olives campus has served as a sports field for neighborhood children for decades. In 2012, the LWF, with support from the Islamic Development Bank and the governments of Sweden and Turkey, upgraded the dirt pitch to a FIFA standard football field with lighting, providing an important opportunity for girls and boys in East Jerusalem to play football in a safe and inviting environment.
