STUDENTS IN BILLIRI, GOMBE STATE TOOK PART IN THE LIFE CHOICE PROGRAMME OF SELL
Mary a member of the Bauchi SELL team worked together with Moses of the SELL Resource Team in delivering the SELL Programme at All Saint Secondary School Billiri. The programme was long scheduled to hold on Thursday 25th October, 2012. With the announcement of the National public holiday for the Eid –El – kabir celebration on Thursday and Friday (25th – 26thOctober 2012), there was apprehension among facilitators that the workshop might not hold however the students who were a mixture of Muslims and Christians were eager to experience the SELL programme and insisted that the Programme should hold. Since it was a day work and it was not the main Sallah day, the Facilitators gave it a try and worked with the students from 8am to 3pm. 29 young students and two staff members participated (11 female and 20 male)
The students were very happy they participated; some said they have acquired skills on how to give feedback and choose trustworthy friends but their challenges was how to accept feedback from others. In the end, they thanked the facilitators and requested that the team should come again and share the programme with more students in the area.
On the 26th – 27th October 2012, Mary after working with the students in Billiri, joined Felicia and James; members of the Gombe Team to run a SELL Programme at the central area of Gombe town. The Peace Building Unit of the SELL Programme was explored during the workshop, where 26 young adults actively participated. 6 among them were ladies.
At the workshop in Gombe, the participants said Peace building is vital and they promise to put more effort in being peace makers in all of lives situations.
