Day 1: Reality strikes back
Together with local experts and professionals, we started to discuss 3 different projects that we would like to support with the help of your donations. All these projects aim at bringing education into these centres. In terms of preventing depressions, giving hope, motivation and perspectives, education is key! We are looking forward to report on these projects more in detail within the coming days.
Abdallah (13) was hit by a grenade splinter on this head. The photo shows the disabled boy with his physical therapist. He arrived to Amman two months ago.
Muwafak (15) is an orphan after both his parents were killed in a rocket attack. When he grows up, he wants to become a teacher, he told us.
Obviously, this is just a little selection of the children we have met today. Despite the sad stories, we are happy to see that they are all in good hands now. However, we also know, that the time is running, how big the potential consequences of an increasing educational gap are – the “loss of a generation”.
