Story telling session at Ghirass Center and various activities at Zakaria village PDF Print E-mail



60 Children and parents at Zakaria village enjoyed the great performance of the Palestinian actor Khaled Massou. Happy children songs echoed at the Zakaria’s kindergarten, as the children sang along and danced with Mr. Massou. These activities are a part of Ghirass’s outreach program which aims at a progressive empowerment of those marginalized areas adversely affected by the Israeli occupation, the Israeli settler’s attacks or the wall. Ghirass aims at triggering the children’s imagination and lifting their spirit with laughter and fun.

Mr. Massou also participated in the reading activity at Ghirass center. 40 children and parents sat together in the center’s hall to listen to Mr. Massou’s story about poverty, dreams and how parents should respect children’s dreams and cater to their concerns.

These story telling sessions come as a part of “Father Read to Me” campaign implemented by Tamer Association. Children enthusiastically participated and answered Mr. Massou’s questions about the story. Mr. Massou thanked Ghiras and Tamer for this opportunity and expressed his deep happiness to be part of this activity and share the children’s little dreams and their boundless imagination.
