The training courses took place for 3 days and were very effective thanks to everyone’s enthusiasm and activeness. They were all eager to learn more about life-skills teaching methods and raised a lot of questions about the related issues. Moreover, because the participants were female, they felt more confident and comfortable in exchanging ideas and discussing.

Through “be yourself”, “be healthy”, “be empowered”, “money savy” sessions, the teachers explored the children’s rights, difficulties and solutions for them.

In addition to the theory contents, in this training course, they were also put in practical situations in which students may have to cope with in real life as well as worked together to find the best way to convey the information to children. The teachers were encouraged to stand up and voice their opinions in order to practice public speaking skill and to share their own stories, their own problem that need advices. The safe, open and natural environment is one crucial goal that Goal organizers wish to achieve.
