The PEARL project is a global youth project created in order to get youth from all the world closer to news.
Students from different high-schools from all over the world participate in the PEARL project, read, write and publish their compositions over the network and in other media.
The students receive assignments and articles they're supposed to read and answer. At the end of the training session the students receive a Young Journalist certificate and publish their own material on a regular basis on the PEARL site and on other medias.
I believe we all joined the project in order to get our voices heard, to get a “stage” for our opinions.
Nowdays, when the Israeli propaganda is very poor, it's very important to represent our country – both the good sides and the bad ones. As the youth of Israel we have got a lot of influence on the people that would read what we are going to express, so we have decided to take the lead and represent our country in an appropriate way.
We, as teenagers have already learnt: if you don't express your opinions and thoughts – the world will not change.
During our study of journalistic writing, we’ve learned about children’s rights and the students’ rights in Israel.
We received many texts, fliers and read a lot of information about our rights as children of the world and our rights as high school students in Israel.
Using the skills the Pearl program has given us, we wrote articles about children’s and students’ rights. Some of the articles were sent and even shown to the public by using them as a part of the final English project.
I believe that by studying about the children’s and the students’ rights in Israel through the Pearl program, people know now much more about their rights. Fellow students are getting more interested in those topics, and the students who participated in the program are the ones with the answers to their questions.
