First of all, I am Mohammed Elkahlout I graduated from Al Aqsa university in Gaza strip from media collage , I am currently work as a volunteer in secretaries of the Palestinian youth workin Gaza strip, as a youth activist, I have participated in several activities held in the Gaza strip. these activities include the formation of the youth movement against the internal split between the Gaza strip andWest Bank. This movement aimed mainly to eliminate torture and disseminate tolerance , peace and reconciliation. Moreover, I also was a member of those who participated in the establishment of a youth group consisting of persons interested in intercultural dialogue and development based on the culture and history of Palestine. We also had a deep belief in offering the young persons the opportunity to express their needs and problems and encourage them to work together in order to promote the youths role in the development of the society.
Let me draw to youhighlight features about Palestinian youth situation in Gaza strip. If you walk in streets of Gaza you can finda university degree holders sell cigarettes or hot drinks on carts as street vendors ,or a young man who his hope disappeared while he is waiting his place in the queue of unemployment. This is a tip of the iceberg of the damages of Gaza deteriorating circumstances .
I'm as well as the rest of the Palestinian youths. I'm the one ,who is now captive under thecompelling conditions in Gaza, have broad experience through working in many civil association butlost my work because of Gaza bad situation. I didn't give up and could barely open a candy store in my city Rafah ,but unfortunately the war in 2014 destroyed my only source of living and I couldn't reopen it again .It didn't kill my dreams yet because I have the determination and wellness that keeps me try over and over again .So I decided to travel abroad to escape from the prison which called (Gaza), I have tried many times to be able to cross the border between Palestine and Egypt, but again and several times the siege of Gaza and the complexities of travel between me and my dreams have stopped and I still remember me so far that I am flying in a cage.
So please I need your help to let the bird to fly again and to unleash my ambitions and dreams to come true.Help me please to travel away from the prison to complete my study ,to improve my potentials , access to decent livingand struggle to help my family and my home at all local and international levels.
