A Modern Day Shepherd's Story of Success

December 1, 2012

 

Abdallah stopped attending school two years ago as a 3rd grader, and started working in the fields as a shepherd. Life at home was

in which the Middle East Children's Institute or MECI operates, informed MECI's psychologist (Ronza) about Abdallah's situation. Ronza then went to visit Abdallah's family seeking permission for him to return to school and participate in the MECI after school program. Eventually, Abdallah returned to the day school to take his place amongst his peers.

 

 At the beginning he had some learning difficulties and exhibited social/emotional issues that needed to be carefully addressed. He was having a hard time communicating and getting through the school day. Abdallah was having problems such as basic memory recall, finding the right classroom, and other daily problems of integrating with his peers. The day school teachers decided that Abdallah needed additional customized counselling through MECI.  

 

After only three months of intensive counseling at MECI, Abdallah showed tremendous progress both academically and socially. He is now communicating with his classmates and progressing significantly in his academics. MECI's team lead by our psychologist worked with him individually to give him the support and care he was missing at home. Abdallah is still receiving support from MECI working on communication and educational skills as well as building up his fragile character. Today he is a proud member of the 5th grade class, smiling again and more apt to make positive life choices ahead as he develops into a productive member of the community.
