The jump took place a day late on Sunday 29th due to bad weather on the 28th. On the day the weather was perfect and the jump was scary but amazing. I am so pleased I didn’t chicken out at the last post and really appreciate everyone’s donations and comments of support! Now I hope everyone can join me in wishing luck to the children involved in the Children’s Rights project. I know I can’t wait to see what they produce!

In the plane just before the jump! JUMP! Is it a bird...no its a plane with Nick jumping out of it! Definately no going back now! Yeah! Safely back on Terra Ferma

About Our Everyday Lives

Work is now underway for Our Everyday Lives (OEL) to start to produce children’s rights films throughout the Middle East, to enable young people and organisations to learn about their rights, and in addition enable people to better support young people in areas of risk.

OEL aims to produce both a film and animation with young people in Bethlehem, Palestine that looks at the rights of the child. The young people will explore the UN’s convention on the rights of the child and will produce two films that reflect this document alongside their experiences.

Generous donations have already been made towards this cause, but all further support would really be appreciated. The donation line on this site remains open, all donations go directly to the project. Your support so far and ongoing support is really appreciated.

How they will do this

They will produce a short film for 10 years (& above) audience and an animation for under 10’s. The films will be screened and used as an educational tool throughout Palestine and used to promote this work throughout the Middle East. The young people will not only be trained to produce the films but they will also receive relevant training to become trainers themselves. This will enable them to go on and train other young people in Middle Eastern countries to produce media that can be used positively within their communities.

“It’s important to learn about other people’s lives and I hope they learn from watching us”
- Ahmed 16 years

“It would be great to do more of this type of work, but it’s impossible for us”
- Salah, 15 years old

“It is very important for our children to know their rights so when the occupation ends they will be able to lead our country positively and with knowledge, they are our future leaders”
- Ashraf, Media project leader in Palestine

OEL aims to produce media that enables other young people to learn about their rights and for the adults of the world to become aware & recognise how they should be supporting young people. Each & every child, regardless of where they come from, no matter what the political agenda, has the right to live in a safe and healthy environment.

Our Everyday Lives is organized by Mouth That Roars

MTR supports young people to develop self-esteem, self-confidence, self-awareness and motivation. They provide a learning environment that increases young people’s awareness of their community, wider social issues and encourages cultural exchange through the process of film making and teamwork.

Children’s Rights

Our Everyday Lives (OEL) is a project that aims to give voice to these young people by giving them the opportunity to tell their stories via media. It’s through this access we can learn about their everyday lives and produce films on the rights of the child based on the UN convention of children's rights.

OEL aims to produce media that enables other young people to learn about their rights and for the adults of the world to become more & recognize how they should be supporting young people who deserve and have the right to live in a safe and healthy environment.

Children’s Rights Films


  • To raise £7,100 for the Our Everyday Lives Children’s Rights Films project. (See Budget)
  • To provide the facilities and skills for children to express themselves through the media of film-making and animation.
  • To produce a film/s that explores Children’s Rights for young people and an animation for children to be used as Educational Tools for all schools/youth organization in Palestine. Widely available film will overcome the difficulties our facilitators have encountered in publicizing and holding workshops in the area.
