We are super excited to announce our first training session at Collège d’Enseignement Général in Cotonou, Benin Republic.
This is to implement the Education for Sustainable Development curriculum developed by organisation to prepare children for a sustaining world. The new curriculum covers training modules on Global Citizenship Education and Peacebuilding. It also includes exciting experiential activities aimed at making learning creative and transformative for our target groups.
The two hour training session on Self Awareness was able to take the learners on a reflective journey, starting with an awareness of their identities, passions, preconceptions and limitations. We believe strongly that leadership education should begin with knowledge and understanding of self as this is important to make important choices in life and to become proactive change agents in the society.
We are grateful to the Educate Children Foundation, a local organisation working to promote quality learning through the use of Information Technology for their assistance in locating the school we visited and for their active participation throughout the training process.
