MOHAMAD AL JOUNDE
18 – LEBANON – Education for Refugees
Mohamad created a school in a refugee camp in Lebanon after escaping with his family the repression of the Syrian revolution. When he arrived in Aley at 12 years-old, he was denied education and he decided to found a school to give a chance to children like him. Today, 200 Syrian refugee children attend school thanks to him. Mohamad believes in the power of story-telling and child’s resilience.
« Children are always portrayed as victims in wars and revolutions, they are never portrayed as people who have the power to change the situation. »
« I would like to say to my generation that they matter, we matter, and we are much more powerful than we think. »
