Five international Community Development Interns will lead enriching summer programs for children, youth and adults from refugee camps and other marginalized areas of Nablus.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Political strife and restricted movement have led to poverty, isolation and trauma in Nablus, particularly for the city’s 50,000 refugees and the 60% of residents under 25. TYO offers children and youth positive and enriching alternatives designed to foster creativity, life skills and hope among the city’s most marginalized populations. Interns’ programs for mothers (exercise, health, computer) promote their development as people and parents, multiplying our impact through the entire family.
How will this project solve this problem?
Each intern will develop and implement their own creative program, acting as important role models for over 1,000 community members and documenting participants’ learning and development, as well as experiencing valuable intercultural cooperation.
Potential Long Term Impact
TYO is a safe space where up to 5,000 residents play and learn each year, making the Nablus community safer and healthier. This project facilitates awareness and cooperation across international divides by fostering mutual understanding and respect.
