    Activity 1:

    The orientation meetings with partners were conducted in first month of the

    project and signed Memorandum of Understandings (MoU) with each partner.

    The 3 main partners are:

    1. African-Jerusalem Delegation Society

    2. Spafford Center for Children

    3. Burj Al-Luqluq Social center Society

    The 3 partners locate in the Old City of Jerusalem and are active in the field in

    working with youth and children.

    The meetings aimed to involve partners in the project, its objectives, and more in

    details of the activities. Juzoor asked each partner to include number of its

    children groups in the project activities, and help in spreading the calls for

    activities among their targeted communities and groups. The activities of the

    project were discussed with partners and they suggested some improvements

    and agreed on the methods of implementation. Juzoor expressed its interest to

    support the partner as CBOs through the project and co-implementing the

    activities. The Memorandums of Understanding were signed at the end of each

    meeting as partners

    Juzoor launched a call for participants for a Summer Training Camp for one week

    for children between 12 to 17 years old from Jerusalem and its hinterlands. The

    call was spread among partners, their social media pages, Facebook group for the

    Jerusalem Youth Parliament for Students, and at number of schools.

    Activity 3:

    Intensive training camp titled “Image & Sound”, included: child rights based

    approach, collective group writing workshop, drama, flash-mob, and design

    advocacy campaigns. The camp lasted for 6 days (from 22 to 27 June) at

    Spafford Centre for Children in the Old City of Jerusalem.

    The title of the training camp was suggested by the partner African-Jerusalem

    Society while preparing for it. “Image and Sound” as title reflects the core idea

    of the project which is training children on using various advocacy tools, because

    we either see the tool, hear it, or both together. Then and because children liked

    it; it became the short title of the project.

    This training camp came as merging activity for main 3 main activities in the

    workplan: Advocacy training, Creative Workshops, and design campaigns.

    This merging was due to the delay in signing the agreement between Juzoor and

    World Vision; which made the team able to start implementing in June. Thus, and

    because most of June is dedicated

    for final examination at schools; the

    team in consultation with World

    Vision decided to do the activities

    outside schools with community

    centres and to merge the activities in

    order to save time and offer

    intensive training for the children.

    Total of 60 children participated in

    the training camp. Majority of the

    participants are females from

    different schools and areas in Jerusalem.

    The team of the camp; 5 members: two main trainers, two volunteers youth

    workers, and one supervisor. The team met twice in June for preparation for the

    camp, its content, methodology, approaches, and for logistics.

    The daily activities in the training camp were as the following:

    1st day of the camp was opening, introduction about the project, its objectives,

    and program of the camp, training sessions on child rights, advocacy, and


    2nd + 3rd + 4th days was dividing the participants to two groups, and organize

    parallel workshops for creative thinking, drama, Flashmobs, and photography.
