Diagnosed as a mute by his teachers and illiterate parents who are in deep poverty (Income less than JD50 a month) Barwwiz often had trouble participating in kindergarten and playing and communicating with other children. Barwiz's first introduction to the computer was through Shabakat. He excelled, and immediately learned how to turn the computer on and off and how to navigate through software. Most impressively for a child of his age, Barwiz quickly mastered the motor skills required to to move the mouse while looking directly at the screen, and was able to jump between exercises in the software without hesitation. Due to the self-confidence he developed through his new computer skills, Barwiz now loves school and is no longer mute! He interacts well with his classmates. During the Ghor al Safi Community graduation ceremony, Barwiz demonstrated his new talents to community applause. Thikra ( Amman ) 4 year old orphan, Al-Hussein Society orphanage Thikra did not go to kindergarten, did not have coloring books or games. Her life is different from most children because she does not live with her parents; she is an orphan who lives in the Al-Hussein Society orphanage. When she began the SHABAKAT program Thikra used to prepare herself everyday for her class by getting her books and making sure she did her homework, hoping that Ms. Shatha (SHABAKAT Youth) would tell her that she did a good job and reward her by placing a star on her forehead. Before SHABAKAT was introduced to the orphanage, kids there would not receive education until they are old enough to move to the orphanage for older children where they start at the first grade in public school. Thikra loves the computer and knows how to play the numbers song on the computer. She is also capable of writing her name. Thikra and her friends at the Al-Hussein Society have been impacted greatly by SHABAKAT. Muhsina ( Bseira/Tafeela) Mother of 12, dropped school at 4 th grade . Although there is a computer in Muhsina’s home, she did not know how to use it. Initially, Muhsina was reluctant to join SHABAKAT due to her responsibilities of taking care for her children, lack of transportation, and her weak skills in written Arabic. Muhsina attended an orientation session and was encouraged to participate by SHABAKAT Youth. She mastered the computer skills taught through the program and has improved her writing skills as well. “My weakness in writing is no longer an obstacle. Through SHABAKAT I became familiar with the parts of the computer and their various functions and I enjoyed the entertaining and educational software. SHABAKAT Youth even helped me learn how to use Microsoft Word to write,” Muhsina recounts. “I have learned [so much] about the computer and I thank everyone involved in SHABAKAT” Amani Al Manni ( Karak) University Degree in Educational Sciences . Since her first day at Muatah University Amani has been an active volunteer in the areas of youth and leadership. Amani attended Shabakat awareness session, and was invited to become one of the SHABAKAT Youth. She hesitated at first because she thought the training would be purely theoretical. However, after joining the program she realized the program was balanced between theory and practice. She was impressed with the comprehensive yet modern approach adopted in the training. She was part of many community outreach projects where she conducted field surveys in her community. Amani’s objective was to get a good job opportunity, she did not get a single job offer until she updated her CV with what she learned during her participation in Shabakat. which allowed her to obtain a job with Relief International Schools online as an Arabic Teacher and Youth Support Officer. Amani says: “ I am very thankful to Shabakat, this experience truly changed my life ! “ from the field
