Daffa Puppet Theater

Dafa: An Arabic word which means; The contrary of loneliness and estrangement and the contrary of stealing basic human rights; homeland, education, health, water, air.

Dafa started to establish small groups for puppet theatre in poor areas consisting of children. On Feb. 2010 we established the first puppet theatre group in Zarqa camp. Our group is improving and devising puppet show projects there and in other different poor areas.

We are trying through our projects to emphasize the importance of the dream, which is always linked up to reality. The project occurred as a reaction to the following facts: the poverty of these places, of camps and poor neighborhoods, of the yards and gardens where children play; the unhealthy environment and cramped houses; the difficult living conditions; the bad economic situation and the inability of the children families to buy games for them.
