2004 Awakening Workshop
Norma Sfeir, educationalist, producer and 5 other talented ‘animatrices’* arranged an ‘awakening’ workshop over five days, for 20 children from 8 to 12 yrs old from the village of Bsous.
The purpose of this workshop was to awaken the children’s inner talents and respect for the other, through play, self expression and respectful interaction and to achieve greater self-confidence. Traditional games, collage, painting and song, skilfully guided by the dedicated teachers, all helped this purpose to be fulfilled - happily.
