Clouds over Sidra- inspirational

Clouds over Sidra   I just watched this film again- so moving. I love this young girl’s perspective of refugee life and her dreams of returning to her homeland in the near future. Unfortunately, nobody knows when this Syrian war will end and what these refugees will be faced with if or when they are able to return. Articles I have read about the Za’atari Camp suggest it may evolve into a permanent settlement.

Based on this inspirational documentary, I’d like to research further the Syrian refugees in the Za’atari camp. As Sidra held on to her hopes and dreams for the future, I will concentrate on the child-friendly spaces initiative- incorporating the personal learning space (empowerment), the group learning space (community belonging) and eLearning (connecting the outside world and future technology). By keeping these children educated in a safe and community-based environment they have a chance at a brighter future as citizens of the world. These children are the future of post-war Syria.
