The Sharing Education and Learning for Life (SELL) Programme Ghana conducted its 5th training for volunteer facilitators in the Wa Zone, February 24th to 27th.
It was on the Wisdom of Traditions unit and took place at the Spiritual Renewal Centre in Wanye, Upper West Region.
The penultimate training for the zone brought together trainee volunteers from Nandom, Jirapa, Tumu and Wa communities where they explored various traditions, their wisdom and the way we have been influenced by them. It produced moments of deep reflection and discernment on the calls of the spirit in today’s world.
Having learnt about the effects of industrial revolution, participants shared that, human actions and inactions are responsible for causing harm to the environment and there is the need to change attitudes and intensify education towards care for the earth. Other suggested ways in this effort is to plant and grow trees and cut the use of chemicals in farming.
As facilitators of the SELL Programme, which puts them in position of leadership, their awareness was raised on safeguarding children and vulnerable adults in line with the Safeguarding Policy of the Programme. They were also made aware of the responsibilities and duties it places in them.
The six teams in the zone are expected to organize workshops in their respective communities and impart other young people.
