CHILDREN WITHOUT BORDERS
In Children without Borders, we seek to emphasize the emergence of what we tend to call our “Six C’s” Critical Thinking, Creativity, Cooperation, Co-Existence, Commitment and Courage.
Thus Children without Borders seeks to ensure a mental, moral and physical empowerment of children living in the different cites of the Holy Land. Given the political, economical and social circumstances in the Holy Land, children tend to be the most victimized and dispersed. Its main target is to send children equipped with a wider vision, firm will, and steadfast faith to a time where they become the men and women of their age.
“I BELIEVE THAT INSIDE EACH OF US,
A CHILD MOST INNOCENTLY RESIDES.
AT CERTAIN MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES
AND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD,
WE NEED OTHERS TO STAND BY US,
GIVE US SUPPORT,
AND EVEN LIFT US
WITH A SENSE OF A SHELTERED EMBRACE. ”

“WE WILL EVENTUALLY BREAK DOWN
ALL BORDERS THAT VEIL THE HERO CHILD
WHO VIGOROUSLY INHIBITS OUR SOULS,
AND THUS GIVE PACE IN THE FUTURE
FOR CHILDREN WITH BORDERS TO BECOME
MEN AND WOMEN WITHOUT BORDERS.”
