The Training, Coaching, and Mentoring Department continues to maintain a strong relationship with leads organizations in the past months. Based on the recommendations made by the organizations that attended the last attachment theory Train the Trainer workshop, a refresher training was held in August to go through the AT Modules and also look at areas to improve and recommendations. 20 participants from 10 organisations including: Fresh Hope Children’s Home, Commit and Act Foundation, Love one Another, Street Child, Jonathan Child Care Ministry, SOS all from Bo, Every Child Empowerment Forum, Grace Foundation-from Kenema, and Mustard Seed Foundation and Children of the Nation from Moyamba were invited to this program.
The workshop was divided into two sessions: the presentation session from both CRC Staff and participants and the group work session. Key modules of concern from the participants were presented again by the CRC staff for better clarification and understanding. Several questions were again asked by participants during this session. The participants were also given the opportunity to present some of the modules based on the trainings some have also done with their caregivers in their various operational areas. Participants were also divided into groups in the group work session to work together and present on various areas such as: i) the module they very important and enjoy best in the AT Theory, ii) what other topic to be added as a module, iii) how has this training helped their various organisations and which further recommendations needed to improve on the AT Modules. Presentations were done after the group work.
From the follow-up done during the workshop on the train the trainer workshop in May, the following organizations have conducted training for their care givers, other organizations, social workers and community people: Fresh Hope Children’s Home, Jonathan Child Care Ministry, SOS, Grace Foundation-from Kenema, Mustard Seed Foundation and Children of the Nation from Moyamba.
