CARAVAN, a URI Multiregion group, partnered with the Ahliyyah School for Girls in Amman, Jordan to offer youth an introduction to the subjects of gender equality, cultural diversity, intercultural and interreligious understanding, and the need for peace. 

The starting point for the discussions is CARAVAN's latest art exhibition, I AM, which features the work of 31 premier Middle Eastern women artists, from 12 countries, of Muslim and Christian backgrounds. It visually celebrates the rich, diverse and pivotal contribution that Middle Eastern women make to the enduring global quest for harmony and peace.
