Next for the month was the community training at Shamdan 17th to 21st April, 2013, the fifth of our community training and like they say ‘the bigger the merrier’. The training had the most number of trainees in the history of the SELL Programme, a total of 43 young adults were in attendance. The Unit of the SELL Programme treated was Community Building; the team of Leo and Moses showed moxie, though it was not easy to manage such a large number in facilitators training from the feedback on evaluation form by participants the dual did an awesome job in delivering the training. Here are some of participant comments. “The Programme has opened my minds and eyes on peace building, community building & unity among different religion in Nigeria, also the important on gender equality”- Jerome Tangkat; “My greatest insights and learning from this training is that the development of my community is my responsibility”- Haruna Ringnap; “Am moved to stay more connected with my family, community and work to help them”- Elizabeth Dapak
Ending the bridge work that started in April and closing the first round of our community facilitators’ trainings that began at Bokkos in Plateau state the sixth community training took place at Sacred Heart Minor Seminary in Jalingo Taraba State from 24th to 28th of April, 2013. The trio of Moses, Jonathan and I were at hand to facilitate the sessions. The unit of SELL covered was the JUSTICE Unit; the passion, confusion, concern and sadness on the faces of the trainees showed a positive signs of going back to inspire other young people within their community to engage the system of injustice as ‘Simon says’ (a tool used to explore the rationale behind the culture of “obey without complain”/finding out the repercussion of obeying such command). A total of 21 young adults were trained as facilitators of the SELL programme at Jalingo, adding to a total of 25 SELL Programme facilitators at Jalingo. Some comments from participants at the end of the training are: “I have learned to be bold and courageous”- Emily Anthony
“To whom much is given, much is expected. So the facilitators (trainee) should at least stand up for justice to prevail when there is need for that”- Anthony Mairigima “In the training number of female were small”- Emmanuel Achi “Got more insight on the oppression of women and how to review newspaper articles”-Jonathan Ezekiel
