Monthly Gatherings to Encourage Mothers
Our Mothers’ Gatherings are designed to offer hope and encouragement to some of Egypt’s most impoverished families. Mothers whose children are enrolled in Stephen’s Children’s Community Education Centers, as well as mothers from the neighborhood, are invited to participate in this monthly gathering. It’s an opportunity for the mothers to discuss the personal development of their children, but also to share personal and family issues in a safe and positive environment. The role of women in Egyptian culture is often minimized or overlooked, but mothers are at the heart of the family structure — and these gatherings provide practical ways for women to be more effective in their homes and in society.
