This exhibition aimed at gathering children from different places,with an aim of raising awareness to the public that:

No matter where the children come from, no matter what their nationality or their religion is, no matter the distance between them; they all want a proper education, they all dream about the same ideal life.. which is nothing but a decent life.

They  all have the right to go to this school,In the same spirit  another Exhibition will be organized involving the Roma children, who will also get to share their artistic skills with other children from Syria and Lebanon.The children also got to do a video recording  Which will be released soon to the public through the social networks.
