This documentary is part of the humanitarian campaign “Education in Gaza, a seed for peace”, initiated by Unescocat in 2009.
Unescocat and the Escola Valenciana federation collected 38,470 Euros to help rebuild six UNRWA schools in Gaza affected by attacks by the Israeli army in January 2009.
Pupils and teachers involved in the campaign prepared questions for the author of the documentary to ask pupils and teachers in Gaza.
The aim was to establish LONG DISTANCE DIALOGUE.
