A Child’s Understanding Grows
We continued to introduce the Transformational Community Development (TCD) program in the Shobra Al Kheima Village. 11-year-old Abanub shared, “I didn’t care about my appearance and would not brush my teeth or live as normally as any boy. I heard a lesson about being healthy and learned what healthy eating is. Now, the first thing I do when I wake up is exercise, take a shower, comb my hair, and wear clean clothes. I also learned to be obedient to Papa and Mama, not to sneeze at or on anyone, and not to lie to or hit any of the children. I learned to love all people, help the needy, stay away from things that harm me like cigarettes, and to choose good friends.”
