Given the political, economical and social circumstances in the Holy Land, children tend to be the most victimized and dispersed. Our program includes children who live within and outside the Apartheid Wall. Its main target is to send children equipped with a wider vision, firm will, and steadfast faith to a time where they become the men of their age; an age where these same children become men who think critically, communicate willingly, co-exist peacefully, act creatively, and cooperate fruitfully.
“I believe that inside each of us, a child most innocently resides. At certain moments in our lives and in the middle of the road, we need others to stand by us, give us support, and even lift us with a sense of a sheltered embrace. Simultaneously, in order to expose our children to the humane significance of peace, benevolence, co-existence, and cooperation, each should take an inner journey that seeks to find the desolate child residing inside. That child who enjoys a fraternity that is free of barriers, an existence free of offence, and a survival free of self-centeredness. By doing so, we will eventually break down all borders that veil the hero child who vigorously inhibits our souls, and thus give pace in the future for Children with Borders to become men without Borders.”
Fr. Ibrahim Faltas, OFM Director of Children without Borders in Bethlehem.
