A walk to school through Balata

We sent out a request for snippets of video to add to our Walking to School video that we are hoping to make. Our video will hopefully show that we are happy to be at school and ask why can't all girls be this happy too. Wouldn't it be great if all girls in the world had the same opportunity that school can give?

We were sent this fabulous video from Abdullah at the Yafa Cultural Centre in the Balata camp in Palestine. His students really upped the ante! Have a look at the video. We think it will make you think a bit more positively about where you live.

Thank you Salah, Nisreen, Farah, Roa'a, Alaa' and Abdullah.

We hope to talk to them about our NGO - Empowering girls, Asking them questions such as:

* Is education free in your country?
* Is there any girls who do not attend school in your country?
* Do many girls go to college in your country?
* How are girls treated in mixed schools in your country?
