Tea with “Children Without Borders” – 国境なき子どもたち “KnK”
With great excitement and enthusiasm, the Japan-related event the kids of KnK were waiting for, started with a captivating presentation by Tymoor-sensei, where he shared his experience and knowledge about Japan, and the Japanese language.
The kids were genuinely interested in the event, and were very interactive.
They explored several Japanese arts and games, and had the chance to learn and do many things first hand.
It was a great chance for Chanoyu Arabia to be part of this wonderful event, and share with the kids the unique taste of Japanese Hospitality.
The girls were a bit hesitant at the beginning, but gradually became more interested, and enjoyed the tea.
Some kids were very interested in the procedure of making the tea.
The calligraphy corner wrote the kids’ names in Japanese, which made it possible to call each kid by their name, and made the the atmosphere friendlier.
Some of the KnK staff enjoyed a short tea break.
Some of the kids were more patient and curious than others.
It is always a great pleasure to make Japanese people feel at home by having a bowl of tea with us.
The boys were very curious and eager to learn and try something new.
As with most kids, the cookies are the fun part, but surprisingly, many boys enjoyed the tea a lot.
Thanks to Chanoyu Arabia’s Team (Mariam-san, Jumana-san, Mo Rai-san, Musa-san, and of course our long-time photographer Tymoor-sensei who despite his busy schedule, managed to document this lovely event).
Thanks to all who worked on this event, and made it a memorable experience to all the girls and boys of KnK, whom we wish a bright and exciting future.
