take me by the hand initiative refugee children middle east

Unfortunately, many journeys of these children go untold and many stories unheard. We want to change this in cooperation with our partners. We don’t simply aim to tell a story of misery and suffering, but actively aim to improve the situation of children in Lebanese refugee camps.

Born out of the simple necessity to entertain these children and give them something to look forward to, we started to hold creative workshops with hundreds of children, giving them the liberty to explore their creativity. This was done via art, filmmaking, music, sports and storytelling. And the candor with which the children responded overwhelmed us. We provided them with a creative outlet to deal with trauma and fear, while giving them the perspective into a better future.

We now want to share this experience with other people. Therefore we created a platform, on which people can inform themselves about these stories and enjoy the artistic projects envisioned by the children. We want to simply take you by the hand, and let the children tell their own stories. You can join our journey on our website, become a part of it by donating, visit our traveling exhibition, collaborate with us on one of our projects or just enjoy the beautiful art they created.
