ICC-C Workshops I und II erfolgreich durch geführt!

Liebe Spender und Interessierte,
mit Freude können wir euch mitteilen, dass wir die ersten beiden ICC-C Workshops erfolgreich durchgeführt haben. Das Interesse und die Motivation waren riesig. Insgesamt haben jeweils über 30 Betreuer und Betreuerinnnen aus insgesamt 12 Waisenhäusern an den Trainings teilgenommen.

Hier ein paar Impressionen aus den Workshops:

Und hier noch einige kurze Kommentare von unseren Teilnehmern und Teilnehmerinnnen:

"When we were talking about disciplinary strategies in this training, it was the first time for me to realize what consequences violence has."

" What I know now is that behavior cannot be changed by harsh punishment. I am very glad to participate in this training. I started using communication methods to discipline my children and the children at the orphanage center. I am convinced it will work. I am not going to beat children with sticks anymore."

"I wish you could do this training for many other caregivers of orphanage centers all over Tanzania."

Für uns sind diese Rückmeldung eine tolle Bestätigung auf dem richtigen Weg zu sein. Der dritte Workshop ist diese Woche Montag mit fast 40 Betreuern und Betreuerinnen gestartet. Für die weiteren drei ICC-C Workshops fehlt uns jedoch noch die Finanzierung!
