Rand lives in Palestine and has been working with youth for the past 5 years with Gaza Sky Geeks – Mercy Corps. She believes in the power of knowledge and its ability to enact change and says that in her opinion, the best way to keep it alive is to share it with others. She never sleeps without a book near her bed.
I always felt quite helpless to make any difference to the lives of refugees, I felt there was nothing I could do. So when I saw LBB mentioned online, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of this. I believe in the LBB vision. I am here because I have been given a chance to contribute something positive to the refugees’ situation. Sharing knowledge and being introduced to this great community is so motivational, and teaching students from other countries is a great experience for me.
LBB is like a warm second home for refugees and I am proud to be a part of this family.
