Al-Rowwad Center is an Independent Center for artistic, cultural,  
and theatre training for children in Aida Camp. The center fosters  
essential values such as justice, peace and freedom, respect for  
others, open-mindedness, and a sense of belonging. Their work builds  
on the idea that opposition to oppression can be creative non- 
violence, a “beautiful resistance,” as Dr. Abdelfattah Abusrour,  
the creator of the Theatre and  Ashoka fellow , calls it. Abed hones  
the skills of his pupils and gives them a healthy and creative way of  
confronting the trauma of living in a refugee camp that is surrounded  
on three sides by Israel’s “Separation Wall”.

> Exciting opportunities for the troupe if we can raise the required  
> funds: A week of classes with local youth at the Underground  
> Railroad Theater in Cambridge. Public performances by Al-Rowwad at  
> the PCCP and URT. Traveling to the Bread and Puppet Theatre in  
> Vermont to work with this internationally renowned company over a  
> weekend. Public performances in Connecticut, NYC and possibly Cape  
> Cod and Maine.
