"I find the seminars in the Women's Empowerment and Parenting Program very helpful and I have learned a lot from them. In my time at TYO, I attended seminars on human rights, child development, women's rights, and law. This was valuable information for me and I proudly share this knowledge with the community around me.

“I like TYO’s concept and goals. At first, I thought that TYO is only about educational programs. I didn’t know that the organization cares this much about the humanitarian side. That’s what makes this place so special. TYO cares about the happiness of the kids. Children can come here and find support for the unimaginable challenges that many of them face.”

While working at TYO, I have learned that education depends on the community as a whole. Children need time and support from both their teachers and parents. They also need personalized activities. Some children are visual learners, some learn best through physical activity, and some learn best by listening. TYO provides children and the community with these valuable learning resources because they care about them.

“The children aren’t looking for someone to improve their lives through donations or monetary contributions but by feeling heard and understood by others.”

“In general, I don’t need money but I work here because I want to help others and help build my community in order to grow a brighter future for its inhabitants.”

My favorite thing to do in Nablus is to study English. I plan to travel abroad one day to build bridges with the international community through the English language. With the relationships I build abroad I hope to bring financial resources to my community as well as emotional support.  From this kind of support I want to improve housing for people living in poverty.

I really enjoy studying languages. I recently started learning how to play the guitar with one of TYO’s teachers. I was amazed by how learning music feels like learning another language. You need only learn certain sounds, symbols and patterns and how to put them together. Now I’m starting to play songs in English, and I’m excited to become even better in the language.

I love to work with children, especially in the most under-served communities. I want to be there to support those in need when I can. Working with children is a beautiful thing. You can teach children many things and work with so many different personalities. I believe that we can solve so many problems in our society by starting with them. This to me is a wonderful process.

I majored in IT for my degree at An-Najah University and have since struggled to find a job. Last session I decided to volunteer at TYO and it was so much fun. I learned I love working with children because they are silly and make me smile. When I am here I am filled with so much happiness. Now I know that I enjoy my time working with children more than IT, so I hope to find a job where children are the focus.

Boys often ask me, “Why are you teaching us sports?” As a Sports major at An-Najah University, a second degree black belt in taekwondo on the Palestinian national team, and a sports fan, I do not take these comments seriously. However, they show that a girl does not usually teach sports to boys. I aspire to change this belief by overcoming stereotypes and teaching that boys and girls can have equal opportunities and talents.

In my English classes, I am using the language to talk about my family and my community, and also to learn about important musicians from the United States and Europe. As a singer and guitar player, it is great to be able to understand what they are saying. I’m sure that my time at TYO improving my English and meeting new people will be important for me in order to achieve my goal.

Education is so important. We need education so that we can develop ourselves and develop our country, and also because education really helps people.  I love working with the little children, but it can be hard.  In the beginning, they always started to cry, and it can be hard to control them, but we try.  We try to hold them and be soft to them.  And we succeed!  My best memory of playing with them is when we went outside with another class and played football with my class against his.  My team won!

I have realized that education is the greatest method for achieving understanding. I hope to become a physician in the future because I believe that through medicine I will be able to connect to the world. By speaking English fluently, I will connect with a greater pool of scientists and maybe they will be able to come to Palestine, meet Palestinian physicians, and create and teach projects.
