Alaa Qatrawi, 11 years, lives in Khan Younis. She has been attending the Nowwar center for three years now and has this to say: “I was so shy, I didn’t have the ability to speak in public. I felt afraid of everything around me. After joining the psychological sessions, the drama program, the story telling program, the folk tales and children stories programs, I am a completely changed person. I now lead different activities. I am so proud of myself and my family is so proud of me too.
