We are living in the Zaatari refugee camp and we are practicing Self-Defense as part of the Peace and Sport program. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, we are still practicing self-defense thanks to the support of our coach Nesrin.

  • This sport has contributed to raising our self-confidence. As girls living in refugee camp, we suffer from bullying. Thanks to the self-defense sessions and our coach Nesrin, we learned to protect ourselves, to defend our rights and at the same time we learned mutual respect.
