We learned different ways to tell our stories.

we spent six months in 2018 working on short animations with kids in various refugee camps in akkar and this powerful video, ‘i love you but put an end to the war’ was the result. lead by animation director patrick sfeir, the workshop gave them all the opportunity to not only learn new skills, but equally a platform to express themselves and open up about their stories – the good and the bad.

at mishwar, we want to get the voices of our children to the outside world. these young souls have already dealt with things we cannot even imagine so it’s important that they feel supported and valued. we think it’s nice to have kids speaking for themselves for a change. there is lots to learn from them and we feel grateful to be able to listen. thank you to patrick and all the volunteers and staff involved, to goldmine studios beirut, and to fnf lebanon and syria for sponsoring the project and making it possible. we’d also like to thank our ngo neighbours malaak for working with us and allowing us to use their lovely school space in akkar. for anyone interested in refugee education, please check them out as they work tirelessly to give a chance to hundreds of disadvantaged children in our region. and lastly, a huge thanks to all the wonderful kids for sharing their experiences with us all!
