Students of the World wrote -Thousands of people are affected every day by social conflict and war in the Middle East. In June, our team will travel to Nablus, Palestine to take part in a documentary film project with Students of the World to raise awareness about educational programs promoting stability and societal change in the West Bank. We will be working with Tomorrow’s Youth Organization, a nonprofit organization that aims to create educational programming for children and adults leading to more cooperation and economic prosperity in the area.
By reaching out not only to children, but also to their families, TYO is revitalizing one of the most at-risk communities in the Middle East by facilitating communication that bridges local divides in the area. As our production work will take place during the majority of the summer, we hope to market our film in the fall and to promote activism in a community where much work is still needed.
