The team consisted of a father and his two daughters and a husband and wife. I'll tell you more about them all in a few days. Very special people!
There was a lot of laughter as we tried to communicate with each other.
Genelle then went through the short curriculum that will be taught which includes such a wide range of really useful topics from :
• simple acupressure techniques for traumatic stress
• four laws that protect women and children from physical abuse, rape and incest
•"family planning" using a condom or fertility bracelet to keep track of a woman's cycle or vasectomy
•how to do a breast self-exam
We will be using this curriculum in the workshops next week.
We then adjourned to Genelle's hotel room where supplies were spread out on the bed. We stuffed envelopes and brightly colored bags that will be given to trainers, teachers and some students.
It was really fun working together and especially seeing all the supplies that I brought down being divided up. To buy just one pen would cost a teacher a day's salary.
The day ended with a great meal and live music. I have a nice glass of wine with me as I write this blog.
I am so glad I came.
