Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Short Summary 

The goal of this peace building program (which we have called “Hand in Hand”) is to help children continue to be children, even while war wages around them. The idea from this program emerged from our project, the mobile Magic Caravan, which has been moving between Syria, Turkey, and Lebanon over the last two years. We have seen that doing art together helps children to build relationships together without considering their ethnic, racial, or sectarian affiliation. Our goal, then, is to use art to build a bridge of peace and love between Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and Lebanese children. Drawing on the short stories and drawings made by creative Syrian and Lebanese children, we will design and make booklets that will discuss important issues such as peace and children’s rights. We will organize activities for children, through which they will use the booklets to express themselves and call for love and peace. We will print, copy, and distribute 5,000 booklets, and then we will work on them with other children in refugee camps.
