Project: Participatroy Mural of Hope & Joy – Anjara, Jordan | October’22

“Inspiring, positive, encouraging,…” an image has the power to transform. The participatory mural of hope & joy is a monument that reminds citizens about their agency to create a positive future.

People of Ajloun describe their governorate as “forgotten,” and like the “Bermuda Triangle where no state services are available.” […] Participants noted that opportunities are limited. Further Ajloun is one of the governorates with the least number of activities being offered to youth by CSOs, national and international NGOs, and informal youth groups. Among social challenges for youth in Ajloun are: worry about the future, drug use among youth, fear of not attaining self-realization, unemployment.

Participants of the youth mentoring program Tareeqak Akafak faced that challenge and took action. They expressed through arts that everyone has the potential to flourish.
