The Stories of Success !

I have participated with Dawaer in the project “New Media Youth” in the area of Qubayat on Media Literacy, photo shooting and production using mobile phones. This project changed my whole life Taking part in the production of a video with some colleagues that revealed the beauty of my village has opened so many doors and opportunities where I participated in an interview on MTV to talk about my experience

I have been trained with my colleagues on Media Literacy and photo shooting techniques. I felt a lot of comfort and positivity and a participatory. During the project phases, I felt more serious and responsible, especially when I
worked with my colleagues on rehabilitating the natural reserve in Kfar Zabad where I felt that I was contributing effectively to my community and appreciated team work
Majd Al Khatib
14 Years Old, Kfar Zabad
When I was selected to be part of the “New Media” project in partnership with UNESCO, I couldn’t imagine that it could be such an added value to my life, especially in dealing with students at school First of all, I was worried about driving to Beirut 4 to 5 hours a day back and forth. I had a concern about the training itself. Would be a lecture? Well, it didn’t take long before the trainers proved the opposite.
