Success Story

R.J, a girl who didn’t participate due to her shyness, is now more motivated and active, even she asks to take part in helping with the implementation of the session and is more open to sharing her thoughts and opinions with the rest of the group.

M.Z. is a divorced mother of four children; three of them have special needs. She only hopes they can become normal. She understood after discussing this topic in individual sessions that the goal is to help her children become "better" not "normal". Also, she became more confident about herself and about being a good mother for them.

J.S. a 9-year-old beneficiary informed the animator during the second session that he did not have any friends and did not know how to communicate or interact with others. Session after session, he managed to build friendships with other beneficiaries in his group and it was obvious that attained more confidence, especially when he offered to help the facilitator with all logistics until the end of the cycle.
