Lessons for Young and Old

Ezbit el Nakhl Village, Egypt

Children of Ezbit el Nakhl

Peter is a 23-year-old volunteer who has been with us for five months. He traveled far to help us and is responsible for providing lessons to 20 children. Peter shared that he enjoys spending time with the children and is learning a lot himself. He thanks us for giving him the chance to be with us. We are very grateful for Peter and this new generation of volunteers who teach the children.

Women of Ezbit el Nakhl

This month we covered a lot of lessons about physical and psychological health. We also had a lesson on enthusiasm. One woman, Um Rashad, said that she was disappointed with the negative words spoken at the community center. She felt as though villagers were contradicting, cursing, and mocking her. She said that she had surrendered to the negativity, but after our lesson, she decided she would not surrender again. She is determined to ignore the bad words and put her frustration aside because she knows that this is the right way to handle it.
