Hello everyone. Today is the first day in the new classroom at New Day Center. Everyone is very excited.Please watch the latest video by Mahmoud. Later we will post more photos and videos of the children in class. Please consider donating to the future of these bright enthusiastic children who are very hungry to learn despite the circumstances in which they live.

More Info

The New Day Center for Teaching Refugee Kids English is up and running with the children learning every day. This is so wonderful because these children are taking part in the basic right of all children to learn and be in the presence of other children and a teacher in a safe and warm environment. It does not matter the difficult circumstances in which they live or the trauma and uncertainty they experience. Here they are simply children doing what all children ideally do - learn.

Please keep up with the children and their videos to see what it is that makes the New Day Center so special and worth supporting.
