I am so excited to work at Project Harmony this summer in Jerusalem! Project Harmony Israel (PHI) is a 4-week English language summer camp for Arab and Jewish youth in Jerusalem, an initiative of the Hand in Hand: Center for Jewish-Arab Education in Israel.
PHI focuses on fostering peace through shared experiences and giving children facing conflict the opportunity to just be kids by participating in a variety of daily activities, including fine arts, music, athletics, teambuilding, community gardening, American Sign Language, and English games, as well as field trips and educational workshops.
With your support, I am looking forward to building on PHI's mission of teambuilding and coexistence and integrating these values into my future classroom as an elementary school teacher! Thank you for all of your help--I promise to share lots of pictures when I return from Israel! :)
