My volunteering with Karama was amazing, because it allowed me to go beyond the stereotypical views on Palestinians and really get to know them - their hopes, their dreams, their fears and ... their amazing warm and passionate character!
Concerning my work, I organized a photography workshop with the children and luckely there was also time just to sit down an talk to the children, it is a very rewarding experience! The smiles on their faces are the best motivation to volunteer.
The difficulties mostly concern the language barrier I faced, as I don't speak Arabic... Luckely some of the Karama children are very good at English, and they helped me out whenever I needed help!
The highlight for me was definitely spending time with the children and seeing them everyday more passionate about photography!
