THE STORY:

Hi, my name is Drew Callister, and I'm ready to take action, but I need your help!

In the fall of 2008 I studied Arabic in Amman, Jordan for a semester -- and changed my trajectory forever. An ethnic cleansing has been taking place in Palestine since before the creation of Israel, and I have decided I want to help give voice to the dispossessed through theatre and by teaching my native language, English.

My plan is to volunteer for three months with Project HOPE, a grassroots non-profit that provides language and art classes to kids in the West Bank city of Nablus, as well as surrounding refugee camps.

We all have a choice, to sit and shake our heads as we read the news or to stand up and be counted among those who took action. No one can tell the Palestinian story except for the Palestinians themselves, and I want to peacefully assist them in whatever ways I can.

Regardless of your opinion on the conflict there is a need anywhere for art and creative expression, and the kids in Palestine shouldn't be deprived of that opportunity.
