Graduation Day at the Malki-SCM Children’s Center

“Graduation of our first class 🙂
You should see the videos of the moms talking to us after the kids left thanking us for everything, saying how their lives have changed, how the kids want to study now and think of a future whereas before they didn’t think they had a future.

And how one girl used to always talk of hate – she even hated water – and always yelled at her mom – now she says please and I’m sorry – and her mom attributes that not only to her daughter attending the center, but also because she’s seeing Dr. Shafik and has learned how to deal with her daughter’s anger.

Next week we are starting group sessions for the moms. And then the next step is group therapy for teens – right now the teachers are getting trained on how to lead group sessions by conducting them among themselves.

Saturday we are taking the two groups on a field trip to King’s. Rami arranged it – their school bus will pick up the kids from the center and the King’s students will have a program for them. I will be there.”
