12/8/2016 - NegbaZoom Event Teaches the Importance of Teamwork

Negba’s children spend a significant amount of time each weekday at Negba’s after-school homes. But how much do they really know about the organization? A “foreign journalist” from the Le Monde newspaper in Paris met with the children at the Beersheva River Park to test their Negba knowledge through an interactive NegbaZoom activity and see which Negba group best represented Negba. Each group received challenges at different stations across the park, and each task’s solution had to be sent via cellphone photo through What’sApp in order to receive the next mission. Challenges included preparing a Negba cheer, completing riddles about the agency, identifying personalities at the organization, creating an artistic design using the name of Negba, and more.

“I learned a lot about Negba, and how important it is to work in a group,” said Tehilla, 12, from the Ofek group, which tied with the Rimon group to take first place. “But I really enjoyed the taste of victory.” The team effort was an important element of the activity, and the kids learned the lesson. “If we work as a unit, we can solve things even more quickly,” said Agam, 10, from the Rimon champions. Co-champ Liel, 8, agreed. “The missions were really interesting, and since everyone helped, we won!”

And just like that, a new Negba tradition was born. Stay tuned for next year’s match.
