A Social Emotional Training was carried out for a group of 80 social workers from the area of Ramallah. This has been done in coordination with the Palestinian Ministry of Education. The program works with social workers specifically to help them obtain new teaching methodologies and become equipped to introduce the program to other fellow teachers throughout schools.
What is really unique in this training is the high level of trust and competency that the MOE sees in the OPCY team!
OPCY has been working closely with different communities throughout the west bank during the last 8 years. The impact has now spread to the educational and governmental sectors.
In August 2012, one of the largest local/satellite Palestinian TV station (Ma’an/Mix) will be airing the OPCY puppet show media production; a series of 15 episodes addressing crucial issues about community health education and raising awareness regarding children and parent relations.
