Day 7: Thursday 25 July, 2019
Hrag Stepanian, Lebanon
Today, on Thursday 25 July, we had a couple of different activities during the outdoors sports sessions. The activities were mostly based on teamwork, cooperation and listening to each other. I felt that each kid was able to express himself throughout the activity and reveal his talents and skills.
The kids were also engaged in an activity where they took turns saying fun facts about themselves out loud, which helped their friends get to know them better. It is truly magical to see them quickly understand and listen to each other while trying to win challenging games. Some games included players having to save their teammates to get back in the game, which helped them learn the idea of helping others and being there for them.
I believe every day passed during Jusoor’s Summer Program makes every child involved in it friendlier, more communicative, and most importantly a much better person in the future. I hope this program will stay on for years from now, helping more children in tough situations get the chance to explore various activities which will assist them in discovering some hidden talents and passion.
