first time i worked as a volunteer who’ve been actually trained for the work was at Tamer institute .. as a book discuss ..
thats my first check , which i didn’t expect at all . i kept it as a memo ..
the funny story < as they call it > is, the institute called me on the phone after a very long period , before the end of the last year . worried and asking me : why didn’t you get the check paid !! Nalan : i kept it as a memo ! they spread the story as if its something to laugh about ! when i came to seal the deal with the bank and the institute , signing papers that i won’t demand anyone for the money . they didn’t believe it . i meant it when i said : it means to me more than just work .
kids are angels , the chance to read books with them and discuss it . getting into their world . is not work. its love through another way. Palestinian kids are different than the kids in movies or basically in any other country, they’ve been through hell. No one would not get burned from fire ! right ! but the burns in these kids lives is way deeper than it sounds . far reaching impact.
the check wasn’t just a paper with some numbers on . it was a prove to me before anybody else . i can do something for more than just myself . i can act responsible towards my people . i can help .
“i’m not saying i’m gonna change the world, but i guarantee that i will spark the brain that will change the world” 2pac
other times with other kids at the memory of Gaza war that happened two years ago , with NZRA .. hopefully the coming ones even much effective and coming soon ..
