The landscape is bleak. Families live in fear of militants facing off in the streets. Since the beginning of this year in Gaza and the West Bank 23 children have died. This is no place for children to play. An oasis in the center of Rafa City, in Gaza, can be found here at the Ajyal Al Mustaqbal Center. The name means 'Generations of the Future' and it's is one of 40 youth clubs in the West Bank and Gaza supported by UNICEF and its partners. The mission is to help children deal with feelings of hopelessness and provide a safe place for them to thrive. Children are offered life-skills training and psychosocial sessions as well as a variety of child friendly activities. The children have the opportunity to socialize, play and learn - all things unavailable to them in the chaos of their daily lives. Seemingly ordinary activities become a welcome relief. UNICEF and its partners plan to open 15 more youth clubs, reaching an additional 16,000 Palestinian children.
