The Resource Team resumed work on the 2nd of September following a month-long annual leave in August. There were two major trainings in September – one in Wa zone and the other in Tamale. The Volunteers in Wa Zone, the Upper West Region of Ghana, were trained in the Leadership Unit of the programme on the second weekend of the month. This was their second training since they were trained in the Self Awareness unit in January this year. The Volunteers were given additional capacity building and taken through the various sessions of the Leadership Unit. It was a great experience to encounter the Volunteers who are committing themselves to work for their communities.
There were three other workshops in the Tamale zone on the Justice unit. Three of the Mentors were present in each of the communities to support the Facilitators. The communities in which the workshops were conducted are Savelugu, Holy Cross and Saints Peter and Paul. The feedback from the mentors to the Resource Team about the success of the workshops was very positive. The Team appreciates the great work the volunteers are doing.
In January this year the Team had an invitation from the St. Victor’s Seminary in Tamale to conduct workshop for the seminarians. Following that invitation, the workshop was held from the 22nd to the 24th of October in the St. Victors Major Seminary. 27 participated in the sessions which covered three units of the programme – Self Awareness, Leadership and Wisdom of Traditions. It was a great experience to work with these young people who will soon be working with the youth as leaders in the church. The Seminary leadership and the students who participated in the workshop expressed the appreciation for the opportunity and invited the team to come back next year for another workshop. The Resource team appreciates the Seminary leadership and the students who participated for all the great work and is looking forward to having another encounter with them in 2020.
