Boost dignity, break isolation - Support Karama this Wednesday on Matching Day!

By Yasser and volunteers | Director

Boys during summer camp
Boys during summer camp

You remember this picture from last summer? It received the most likes on our Facebook as a bright expression of happiness & friendship, beating isolation and separation!

These boys live only 10 kilometers apart, but met for the first time last summer overcoming restrictions and fear in an area crippled by Jewish-only settlements.  The young communities of Deheishe (a refugee camp) and Khirbet Zakaria (a village in Area C surrounded by settlements) lack opportunities for the teenagers to develop and recreate. But in Karama’s summer camp they can come together to express themselves creatively and build new friendships.

Let’s do it again this summer!

During the summer of 2015 Karama will bring together teenagers from both Deheishe can Khirbet Zakaria. They will enjoy a program with recreational activities as well as workshops that stimulate learning, friendship, leadership and responsibility towards nature and each other. We will work with local Karama volunteers and social workers, while international volunteer will contribute with their creative skills as well. Such a positive experience can impact any girl's or boy's life for the better!

Why is this Wednesday important? Global Giving will match all your donations from 9AM till midnight EDT (starting 1PM GMT for our friends in Europe). 75,000 USD in matching funds are available and EVERY donation – how small, how big – will receive a bonus! On this day you can make your donation go a lot further! And with every dollar, Karama will deliver a program more packed with resources and creativity.

 

How can you help?

  1. Share this email with friends & family so they are aware of this opportunity for Karama!
  2. Like our Page on facebook to show your support for Karama.
  3. Join our Event Page on FB so you will be updated and can show your support!
  4. Open your email on Wednesday to receive the link where you can donate.

We can’t wait for the holiday to start and work together with these youth! Boys like Bara deserve a space to develop themselves away from stress and violence. Karama wants to equip and empower them; with your help we can do that.

Thank you so much for your continuing support - it is a special feeling to know we in Deheishe can count on the thoughts and solidarity from people around the world! 

Get in touch with us - we love to hear from you - on Facebook or hit reply!
