LFT Donors, 300 Deaf Children from Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children, GAZA sends that THANK YOU for providing them new uniforms
Brief about the Program
The 2013/2014 academic year arrived at yet another difficult and challenging time for the families and the deaf children enrolled at the Atfaluna School. Suffering high poverty rates and increased day to day financial burdens the children's parents were forced to bring their children on the first day of school wearing their overused school uniforms or in informal wear. Understanding how challenging life is for the families and with the increased requests from them to assist in providing their children with better fitting uniforms Atfaluna requested assistance from the Lady Fatemah Charitable Trust who generously approved its request.

These children are now asset to their families and to the society
About the Prevocational Class Program:
Deaf youth are often excluded in work, because of ignorance and prejudice of the society. A key factor is often their inability to compete on the basis of skills and qualifications. Therefore, the prevocational program aims at integrating the deaf youth in the society, building their capacities, strengthening their skills and increasing job opportunities for them through enrolling fourteen deaf students in different pre-vocational classes.
Success Story of Brother Saleh Joha funded by LFT in Prevocational Program at Atfaluna Society for Deaf Children
Enthusiasm and Willingness
Shocked and desperate the mother of Saleh Joha received the news of her son’s deafness when he was at the age of eight months. She felt that the life of her son will be blacked due to the restrictions imposed by the society’s perceptions about deaf persons. However, ASDC’s social workers provided Saleh’s family with the essential support and counselling needed to contain Saleh in a warm and cozy family atmosphere, which assured the mother of her son’s future. Saleh joined Atfaluna School, his first years at the school were difficult for him; he did not make a progress on the educational level, and he suffered from psychological complications, he was aggressive and not opened to his peers in the School. Saleh received special care to shape his behaviour. After years of support and help, Saleh has grown into a well-mannered young man, however, he could not make a progress on the educational level.

Passion for Success
Medhat Shatat, a nineteen-year-old ambitious young man. Medhat was at his first months of age when he was discovered to suffer from hearing-loss. The impact of this piece of news on his family was strongly shocking, however, they received the needed support to help them absorbing their child condition. Medhat comes from a family living far below poverty line that affected his progress in the school, as his educational achievement was very poor, because his parents were occupied in securing their livelihood, and they did not provide him with the essential follow up.
