MAALE ADUMIM, WEST BANK - JULY 12: English volunteer Hattie Miall shows her hands after preparing a mud floor in a school that Italian architect Valerio Marazzi is constructing out of old tyres and mud for children of the Jahalin Palestinian Bedouin tribe on July 12, 2009 in the Judean Desert near the Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim in the West Bank. As long as the Israeli army does not demolish the structure, which is being built without a permit by the Italian non-governmental organization Vento di Terra ('Wind of the Earth'), the children of the tribe's three encampments on the road between the Jordan Valley and Jerusalem will finally be able to attend classes without having to make the long and dangerous journeys to Jericho or Azariya. During the last two years, four children from the nomadic tribe have died on the dangerous paths and roads while the others have lost many school days due to poor road conditions, blockage of access roads by Israeli security fences, and the inability of the poverty-stricken families to pay the transportation costs.
