“Music is one of the only ways that young people can begin to attempt to communicate with others – music is a universal language, something that brings a diverse range of people together, regardless of race or nationality. I make music only because it’s what I have a passion for, it’s what I’ve always wanted to do – it’s like my safe space; or a comfort zone. A way to make magic.” Emilly age 13
“Music is something that we can’t live without because it comes from deep within us. I am motivated to pursue music because the spiritual nature of it is so powerful and i know that i was made to use music for a purpose in this world. Leah age 17

TIGER Community Projects, a UNHCR and IRD Program, Za’atari Refugee Camp, Jordan
A film by the girls of TIGER Community Projects, a UNHCR and IRD sponsored arts and education program at the Za’atari Refugee Camp, 6.2 miles east of Mafraq, Jordan, will also launch with the Spring 2018 Global Gallery.  The film combines plays and music videos addressing issues of concern to the young female TIGER community leaders. The video also includes clips about a range of arts opportunities available to participants.  Because of programs like TIGER and as a result of efforts to create innovative educational programming by humanitarian agencies, like the UNHCR and IRD, the 80,000 person Za’atari Refugee Camp is evolving into a successful semi-permanent Syrian settlement in Jordan. The TIGER program launched in 2015, as a joint UNHCR and IRD initiative.  TIGER (These Inspiring Girls Enjoy Reading) runs programs from 5 centers in the Za’atari Camp, with six teams, targeting children from 2-17 years old.  13 mentors guide girls’ education, by the philosophy that “the program is about coaching and not teaching.” TIGER concentrates on developing girls’ communication skills, on furthering their education, and on encouraging their involvement in community outreach and engagement projects.
