Necessity is the mother of invention..
..is probably how you best translate the Arabic phrase “الحاجة أم الاختراع”. This phrase came from the people living in the Azraq refugee camp themselves while we were documenting their innovations. Great examples of how you can built things such as an oven, a seesaw and an AC with little material available, or how you can grow plants and vegetables in the desert without needing soil. Check out the short video on our The Ball’s twitter page to get an overview of the inventions. The video on our Youtube page explains the innovations in more detail, subbing the Arabic explanations in English. Enjoy watching!
