Greetings from us all at the SELL Resource Room. We hope that all is well at your end.
It is always a pleasure to keep you informed of all the activities we are undertaking at the SELL Resource Room and at the local communities and as always we appreciate your support.
The SELL Resource Team had their first SELL Volunteers Facilitators Training from 25th January to 29th January, 2017 at the Youth Centre in Tamale, the capital of the Northern Region of Ghana. The aim of the training was to equip some young adults in Tamale and beyond with the knowledge and skills needed to step down the SELL programme in their local communities. This is to help widen the outreach of the Programme to many young adults providing the platform for discussions on some critical issues of life.
The whole Team comprising of Tommy, Vincent, Hagar and Leo were there to guide and facilitate the training Programme. It was wonderful to see 48 young adults coming in on the first day to sign up for the Programme and as the programme unfolded in the following days they once again signed commitment forms stating their desire to roll out the SELL Programme in their local communities.
New methods of learning and sharing wisdom were exchanged and people found themselves deepening their self-knowledge, growing in appreciation of others and working and learning to work in teams. After the introductory sessions, we focused on the SELF AWARENESS UNIT of the SELL Programme, which was the target of this particular training and explored it together. It was a great time of shared learning as we learnt from one another. Participants in their evaluation at the end of the programme expressed their enthusiasm to take the programme into their communities.
The Resource Team is very grateful to all the young adults who came for the training and have taken up the responsibility of promoting the programme, helping other young people develop themselves and building peaceful communities. We wish them well in the step that they have taken and we assure them of our support as we will be visiting them during their workshops to mentor them and help them build up their confidence. We also appreciate the support of all our benefactors as well as all the people who support us in diverse ways. God bless you all. As we celebrate the success of the training programme in Tamale, we look forward to the upcoming Training for Upper East Region which takes place from 15th February -19th February, 2017. We hope the learning and experience will even be better.
