Sadili staff did a commendable job ensuring that all activities of the day were carried out as had been scheduled. This being the first day of the training camp, the better part of the day was spent on registration, familiarizing the kids with what they should expect during the camp, playing fun games, filling in basic questionnaires and colouring body maps.
Even though the targeted number of 400 kids was not attained, the facilitators were happy about how everything turned out. “I am happy that a good number of kids turned up in spite of the cold and unfavourable weather. I’m very hopeful that many more will come as the days go by, and that we will surpass our target number of 400,” remarked Joy Akim, the lead facilitator.
Areas to be covered during this training camp include: 1) Knowledge-transfer about sexual violence, HIV/AIDS and relevant health topics (e.g. hygiene); 2) Understanding of gender equality and 3) Supporting the increase of civil courage (bystander intervention). The camp goes on until Friday, 28th April before it picks up again in August 2017.
