The Pencil of Hope
People started thinking about Syrian children and gave them hope.
We know about the horrible conflicts, but forget the innocent children.
During the 5 years of the war, news headlines were focused on political and military conflicts. People rarely think about the whole generation of children living in the area, who suffer because of the battles.
Let’s invite people to change how children see the future through their drawings.
We introduced the Pencil of Hope, a digital tool that enables people to draw over children’s traumitized pictures to turn them into hopeful ones. The new drawings were printed onto blankets and notebooks and sent to Syrian children in camps.
