ICT Article: Perseverance...

On the 25th of January, 2011, many Egyptians went down to Tahrir square to protest against the regime and all the corruption in it. In the beginning of the day the protesters were met with excessive violence from the police forces, however, they still managed to reach Tahrir square. Once they finally reached the square they stayed there and they said that they will never leave the square unless their demands are met. The regime tried its best to make these protesters leave the square; they did everything possible to try to make them leave, they cut off the cell phone lines from the for a full day across the country which was Friday the 28th of January, 2011. They even cut off all Internet access across the country for a whole week. Even though these things were done to make the people leave Tahrir square, the people became more stubborn and they said that they did not need their phones or even the internet to keep protesting. The night of the 28th was the most violent night during the whole revolution. The old regime cut off electricity from the whole Square. It was completely dark to the extent that people could see the light from the bullets fired by the police force. The police started using real bullets that night even though they were not authorized to use real bullets. This night was the night that most of the Martyrs of the revolution died in.

Cooperation (Hayah Core Values)...

Cooperation is the process of working together to achieve something at the end. It could be two people helping each other, a group of people, or even a whole community; just like the school of Hayah. Cooperation is our aim in our lives, if you want to achieve anything; you have to achieve it by cooperating with someone. Just like the assembly line in any factory. In a milk factory, you have people observing the assembly line; you have people adjusting the containers, others filling the boxes with milk containers and etc. This is how life goes in your life and everyone life. So if we start from the school office, you find the teacher filling for the other teacher’s papers to send it to them. First, she fills the paper, then she gives it to the matron to send it to the teacher in this class, then the teacher reads the note and replies to her and sends it back with that matron. This is a very simple example of cooperation that takes place in Hayah. If we don’t talk to each other, and you want to tell someone something, it doesn’t get done, does it? You would find cooperation in everything you do in your life. Nobody could get rid of cooperation, because cooperation...
