Samar (16), student at Kadoori Youth Village
“The most important thing I learned here is to respect people from other backgrounds. Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze, even Sudanese, we all grow up together in this youth village”

Samar – a Muslima from an Arabian Israeli village.

Encouraged by her father, a proud 45-year-old Palestinian who wants his daughter to succeed in life, Samar chose to go to an Israeli Youth Village. Her motivation was to learn things she could not access in her Islamic home school as a girl.

Growing up in a youth village helped me feel much more independent & confidant about myself. I like to listen to people and help them solve their problems. I want to become a psychologist or maybe a police detective and be a role model to the people in my village.’
