"In giving them [children] the opportunity to express themselves through the theater and through other arts, they can grow up hopeful and feel they can change the world."                                                       Abed Abusrour

Great news! After weeks of suspense and numerous interviews, Abed Abusrour, a West Bank Palestinian cultural worker, playwright, and human rights activist - and founder of Al Rowwad Cultural & Arts Center, finally got his visa to come to the US for a few weeks.  Come and Support the work of Al Rowwad. 

Watch & hear the children themselves in this lovely video.

Abed Abusrour says,"I don't have the luxury of despair."  

We say,"Your donation to this program combats the evil done in your name with your tax dollars in Israel!"
