An awesome social therapy project I did with International Rescue Committee. I love these girls so so so much

ps: In zaatari camp now, doing some other crazy lovely stuff with the women-mothers-sisters out there.

Over 600,000 Syrian refugees are currently in Jordan, 80% of whom live in urban areas among Jordanian neighbors.

In February the International Rescue Committee organized a two-week social therapy workshop at our women’s center in the city of Irbid that brought together Syrian refugee teenagers and their Jordanian counterparts.

The program included dance, songs, storytelling, theater, community projects — and just clowning around.

“Most of the girls came with very low self-esteem,” said Sabine Choucair, who led the workshop. As a result of the program, she says, “they laughed again. Their self esteem is back.”
