Education, Development + Recovery
Tomorrow’s Youth Organization (TYO) enables children, youth, and parents in disadvantaged areas of the Middle East to realize their potential as healthy, active, and responsible family and community members.
In 2008, SOW first partnered with TYO to document progress on their Clinton Global Initiative commitment made by Hani Masari in 2007 to improve the lives of the next generation living in the Middle East. In 2008 he opened the doors to Tomorrow’s Youth Organization and SOW produced a video that screened at the 5th Annual CGI Conference.
In 2011, SOW partnered with TYO again to introduce new TYO initiatives as well as a creative and authentic, comprehensive video and photo package that would highlight different aspects of TYO programming. SOW also produced 7 finished videos ranging from CGI commitment, community impact, internship, volunteer program, and the new Fostering Women Entrepreneurs in Nablus program, which is in cooperation with the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women.
TYO showcases the videos throughout their website, as well as at the 7th Annual CGI Conference.
