Shield Your Sprouts

By: Mariam Abdel Gowad (Egypt)

No one likes a bully. And sometimes, as kids, we’re not sure what to do when we encounter it – especially if we have been bullied because of our ethnic, religious differences or race. We may even be encouraged from those we look up to, to not look “weak”. But is it worth it? The scholarship and the research say “no” – and for a number of reasons. Mariam’s campaign, Shield Your Sprouts is a guide for parents on how best to protect their children from the problem of religious bullying, hatred and violence.
