Children Changed

Helwan Village, Egypt

 

Children of Helwan

 

Some children that attend the lessons with us every week asked if we could visit them, so we went to Ezbet El Arab in the mountains, a new area close to Helwan Village. It’s an isolated area and no social organisation had entered the area before because of the traditions of those people that resist mixing with strangers.

"I never knew that I have rights."
 

At the end of the lesson about children’s rights, *Akila said that she never knew that she has rights and that she should ask for them especially in Ezbet El Nakhl, because they don’t treat girls the same way they treat boys.

The Art of Reproaching People

Ezbit el Amir Village, Egypt

 

One of the important topics that we talked about which caused a lot of discussion is the art of reproaching people.
 

We taught them what it means to reproach.  We taught them to not accuse people directly of doing something. It's also very important to choose the right timing and to be polite as to not hurt the other person.

Couples Benefit from Marriage Classes

Upper Egypt Village Cluster, Egypt

 

The healthy nutrition classes completely changed the interactions with the children as they improved in attention, making education more effective.

 

In Adndan, a Nubian village, we did a seminar about marriage and family because Adndan is considered to have a very high percentage of divorce.
