Empowerment Through Education in Benin - Q1 2020

Dear followers,

Thanks to the workshops held in 2019 we could gather enough information about the context as to develop an adapted training program. This program was approved by the partners authorities from the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Social Affairs

During the last three months the Graines de Paix’s team worked hard on the conception of the new pedagogical activities. Our experts in Geneva collaborated closely with their colleagues in Benin to design the experiential activities to be conducted during the training and then in the classrooms. The activities are constructed  to develop the expected peace skills for the teachers, their students and the community at large. Our graphic designer and illustrator are busy, preparing the educational tool, considering the continuous feedback from the field.

Four documents are in the process of being finalized: the Trainer Guide that will be used by the educational advisors to train  the teachers  ; the Educational Kit to be used by the trained teachers with the beneficiary children ; the Trainer Guide for social workers ; a Picture Set for awareness raising with the beneficiary communities. These resources will soon be ready and available for the field training that are planned to start on March 17th.

In collaboration with the partner ministries, the Graines de Paix team in Benin has already started the recruitment of 20 pedagogical counselors and 20 social workers who will be involved in the first batch of training.

We are excited to see that the key period of the first field training is now very close, and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.

Thank you for your interest and support! We could not do it without the Graines de Paix community. Please stay informed about Graines de Paix's activities on our Facebook page and visit our Webpage.
