“It is necessary to talk about these topics at our age”, “Non-formal education gives us what we do not receive at school”, “I will definitely share this knowledge with everyone” - this is the feedback from the participants at the end of the training.
In the first half of May, 5 online trainings were held with young people from Tsalenjikha, Chokhatauri, Bagdati, Zugdidi and Senaki municipalities on the following topics: reasons of conflict, tolerance and bullying.
Groups like this format, they are motivated and active, they are involved in discussions. Their frankness should be noted. Leaders are ready to hold informational meetings with peers and share their knowledge. They choose topics out of three directions presented at the training, and most important is that they are very serious and responsible towards their work.
Live meetings would be much more interesting with group work and role-games, but the Covid pandemic does not yet provide such an opportunity.
By the end of the month, 5 more trainings will be held in other municipalities.
The project is implemented with the support of the organization Brot
