During the ceremony, the children of the educational centers of the Ghassan Kanafani Cultural Foundation and of the Mosan Center for Special Needs performed short music and dance shows, and presented the exhibition of the photographs they made during the project activities.
Afterwards all the guests went for a walk in the Tyre public park, in the area entirely dedicated to games and sports and realized by CTM thanks to the close collaboration with the Municipality.
It was an intense and satisfying experience made in three years of work in schools, in centers for disabled people, in agricultural cooperatives and in the public spaces of Southern Lebanon.
