Inspirational Afternoon at TYO

On Monday, 22 February 2010 TYO hosted an inspirational afternoon that celebrated the winners of the Universal Education Foundation’s 2010 Elham contest. About 200 teachers, students and leaders from Ministry and UNRWA schools, along with NGO representatives from Nablus, attended the ceremony.

After a warm welcome by Outreach Specialist Futoon Qadri and International Director Nell Derick Debevoise, TYO’s Core Program teachers lead the audience in an engaging trivia activity that promoted critical thinking and fostered creative mood for the day’s event.

Marwan Awartani, Secretary-General of the Universal Education Foundation (UEF), an organization that advocates for the holistic development of children as a responsibility of society as a whole, gave an uplifting presentation to the audience about the importance of supporting innovative projects in Palestine.

TYO was thrilled to host this event at the Zafer al Masri Building in Nablus and looks forward to further collaboration with UEF.

Students and teachers are invited to submit their innovative projects to Elham for consideration to be adopted by the Ministries of Education, Health or Social Affairs. See more here.
