Day of the Palestinian Child: 1000 kids!
April 14, 2011   Palestine
Almost 1000 boys and girls, accompanied by their teachers or mothers, joined the cultural event organized by Ghirass Cultural Center and the Bethlehem Arab Society for Rehabilitation.
During the event Sa’da and Samar, two MwB trainees that work in the Ghirass Center, joined me in a workshop for all the kids together in which we sang, danced and played body percussion.
I felt honored to take part in this wonderful day, watching children showing their many talents: dancing dabke (traditional Palestinian dance), singing, reciting poems and playing tablah, an Arabic percussion instrument.

Of course we did not manage to get all the kids in one picture…but here you can see some of them making movements on the music!


Thank you Melanie for the pictures!
