Snapshot from the Field: Children’s Workshop

A workshop for Coptic Orphans participants teaching the value of unity in Nag Hammadi-Dishna          (Upper Egypt)

Coptic Orphans workshops teach children a wide range of concepts, from  personal hygiene to values about respect and tolerance.  We ensure that our children are aware of the events happening in their own back yard with the ever-changing environment in Egypt, instead of sheltering them.  After the Egyptian Revolution, workshops encouraged widowed mothers and older children to take an active role in their future.  Now we continue to reinforce  civic responsibility and pride through our age-appropriate workshops about unity.
