“My children were very happy that they had the chance to meet children from other countries”

“The children love the project sooo much”

“The children have a lot of fun with this project… they love the idea… they dream and go through their imagination."

“The poet was special and I was very proud of the girls excellence and creativity”

Rania El Swalhi, Teacher Gaza Girls prep B Secondary School

So I sing to all the children out there
Stay true and honest, know somebody cares,
Come lift your hands to the sky when you’re falling down
When there’s a cloudy sky, I know the sun will come out
And the day is dawning and I know we’re gonna survive

Chorus from a song written by Brilliant Sango ( 1990 – 2007)

“This project is really helpful for the children and very different from the psycho social support. This project has shown me that the children themselves are ready to reach out to other children, they are very empathetic and the children expressed hope and encouragement to others despite the fact that they too are grieving and have experienced trauma they have shown that they still can care for others.”
