Cooperation with forumZFD Lebanon
Steps has partnered with forumZFD to develop the “Hawli w Hawalaye” (About and around me) children summer camps toolkit. The toolkit aims to empower summer camp animators on how to create a safe and creative space for children to grow and learn about themselves and others. Furthermore, the toolkit seeks to teach children on how to communicate non-violently as well as empower them with an understanding for conflict transformation. The toolkit includes everything necessary to organize educational summer camps, including practical guidance for implementing the content, examples of agendas and guidelines on how to develop engaging programmes. The project will also provide interested animators and organizations with trainings on how to effectively use the toolkit.
