In honor of the 4th of July, TYO staff, interns and volunteers headed to the neighborhood park for an afternoon of community service. Serving our community in Nablus is just one of the ways that we at TYO pay tribute to this day of independence – honoring community, equality, human rights and opportunity for all.
On this 235th anniversary of American independence, we are reminded of the centuries old, rich and unique history of Palestine. It is a history that reflects the extraordinary resilience of its people and the sense of community and family that we experience firsthand every day.
Today we take a moment to honor those around the world who continue to strive for freedom and human rights. We are committed by our common aspirations for a better world for tomorrow’s youth.
Humaira is the TYO Nablus Center Director.
