First Summer Workshop for TYO-MEPI Literacy Collaboration

On Saturday, May 14, 2011 Tomorrow’s Youth Organization completed the first summer workshop of the TYO-MEPI literacy collaboration. This session focused on training this summer’s old and new volunteers on how to use Scholastic’s My Arabic library to encourage reading and improve literacy in Nablus’ children.  For more information on this collaboration, read: TYO launches a new literacy project in partnership with MEPI.

Triple Exposure Mural complete in El Ein boys’ school

Last week, Rimah and the volunteers, in conjunction with a group of eight students, completed a new mural in a classroom at the UNRWA boys’ school in El Ein refugee camp in Nablus. The eight boys, all around 14 years old, had a prior interest in art, and this shone through in their natural affinity for painting. They were full of ideas not only for the mural but also about their futures, and football – asking Rimah if she was a Real Madrid or Barcelona fan – two of the most popular teams here.

Many of them had been to TYO when they were younger, attending the photography and painting classes. Some still find the time to put pen to paper and draw or paint for fun. However El Ein School does not have an art teacher, so this was a great chance not only for the boys to be creative but also to brighten up the classroom for everyone.

We would like to thank El Ein School for such a well organised, well chosen group of boys. They were so talented and professional, and the already established friendships made for some brilliant teamwork!
