Introducing TYO’s Video Series: Core Child Program

TYO’s Core Program meets 4-8 year old children at a critical phase of their development, helping them to re-discover open expression and to build self-awareness and confidence.  These children are accustomed to isolated and overcrowded refugee camps and disadvantaged neighborhoods that lack the imaginative atmosphere and open spaces that children need to play and grow.  Watch this next installment in our video series to see how the TYO Center has become a critical safe and creative space for children’s healthy development in Nablus.
