Photo Story: Girls’ Invention in Refugee Camp

 

 

Story Behind the Photo

‘Girls have a harder time in the camp. By our nature, girls are innovative, but we are also shy,’ said Anwar (14). Due to lack of electricity in Za’atari Refugee Camp, children cannot do their homework at night. Anwar and Dina (15) spotted this problem and wished to make some changes. They visited the UNICEF X ONE Humanitarian Changemakers Lab organized by UNICEF and One Foundation at Start-Up Za’atari, where young people can showcase their talent and potential in innovation. The girls attended the workshop there and presented their ideas. Instead of being hesitant, they stepped out and invented lamps powered by power banks with the aids of UNICEF. They hope to spread their invention until every house in Za’atari can benefit.
