Fatima chose the word ” المرأة ” (the arabic word for “woman”) . She says that being a woman in Balata Refugee Camp isn’t the end of the world but it could be a lot better. There’s a lot the next generation should do to change things for the best!

Fatima is a teacher in this little school in the camp. This is the first mural I’ve painted since coming back to Palestine. I’ve been having great fun seeing friends I’d made here and who weren’t expecting I’d ever come back! Thank you to @beyondusnonprofit for giving me this opportunity!
