Central African Republic: Four Young People (and Lots of Kids) Transform a Refugee Camp Into a Refuge for Beauty
In November 2013, four interns: Antoine, Jean, Daniel, and Hector, entered the ATD Fourth World courtyard in Bangui. They had already been volunteering with the team for a few years and wanted to do a 3-month internship to learn more about our work. The team in Bangui was glad to welcome them, particularly a group so eager to reach out to the most excluded people in their neighborhood, village, and country.
For two years, the four of them had worked on a project to write and produce a DVD titled “Child of The World, Give Me Your Hand.” With other facilitators, children, and parents, they recorded and filmed in many different areas in and around Bangui.
