Jerusalem: As a boy, Ramzi Aburedwan threw himself into Palestine's first uprising, a famous photo of the time, showing that he was holding a stone to throw to Israeli soldiers.

He is a respected musician and composer and returns to the children of Palestinian refugee camps.

We currently offer music education to about 2,000 people through a project called Al-Kamandjati (violin in Arabic).

Having grown up in the Al-Amari camp in the Ramallah region of the occupied West Bank, Abreu (38) created a "future generation capable of expressing himself" I wanted to do it.

In 2002 he launched Al-Kamandjati, who wanted to provide young musicians with expensive musical instruments and music theory classes from camps and other poor children.

The violinist who studied music at Angers in western France began collecting instruments donated by various institutions throughout Europe.

Returning to Ramallah, he expanded his business to the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut in 2008 and the Bourj al-Barajneh camp in Lebanon.

The project at Aburedwan now includes eight music schools and more than 2,000 students ages 5-18. In March, Palestinian officials named him the cultural figure of the year.

"We had to protect the camps from the soldiers," said Al-Amari, one of the refugee camps to accommodate Palestinians who became refugees in 1948 by the creation of Israel.

The future is dark to many people who grow in poverty. Aburedwan was able to enjoy good luck to him.

When he was a teenager, he did odd jobs where he could earn money, sell newspapers, and do gardening work for his family at Ramallah.

A woman who hired the man said, "I heard something about scholarships for learning music in France."

"She suggested my name and I arrived in France, where I learned music before I started Al-Kamandjati."

Recently, a group of musicians from the Calandia refugee camp in northern Jerusalem were educated with musicians who teach violin and cello as part of Abreu Pwan's program.

"By the time I was 7 years old, I started to learn music at the Qalandia camp with the Qamandjati group," said Tayib al-Hamouz, 16.

Teacher Montasser Jibreen (age 25) studied music in Kamandjati in 2005.

"I played the clarinet, and after finishing school, I received a grant for music at Angèle University and was an orchestra conductor," he said.

In addition to music education, Aboardwan invited musicians abroad this year to perform for Palestinian people.

Camps, auditoriums, ruins of the ancient palaces of the West Bank, staged Gaza Strip and Jerusalem are planned.
