As far as education is concerned, the camp has six eight-grade primary schools, and 90 teachers, of whom five women. The total school enrolment for 2009-2010 is 4,752 children, including 2,156 girls. The education sector in the camp is managed by three NGOs: CORD, RET and UNICEF.
Regarding water infrastructure, the camp is equipped with two wells, which supply five tanks with a capacity of 95 cubic meters each. There are 29 fountains distributed throughout the camp with 174 faucets, allowing refugees to have water readily available in a 200 meter-radius.
