John Jiderre, the Hausa coordinator of SELL met with Mr. Clement Mallam an ally of SELL, who supports the Hausa component of SELL. The duo shared the Self Awareness and Peace Building Units of the SELL Programme. 57 people were in attendance, (14 women and 43 men)
The Bauchi SELL Community too delivered a workshop last weekend at Guru Area of Bauchi town. The group they worked with was Youths Association, Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Guru. 7 members from that group were in attendance. According to the leader of the group, the low turnout was as a result of other commitments members of the group had. The leader said other members thought the SELL Programme was like one of those half baked programmes they get sometimes from other bodies. So now that they have a taste of it, they will organize for another day when they will have most of their members around.
