"Tajikistan Caring for Orphans and Helping Families"
We left Kyrgyzstan yesterday and flew to Dushanbe, Tajikistan. From there we drove 6 hours to Kujhand, where we would be doing training of trainers for an organization that is committed to excellence in building the capacity of organizations across the country working with vulnerable children and orphans.
The group of potential trainers will leave our 10 days together - with four curricula they can begin offering: Phase 1 - Becoming Trauma Informed (18 hour course); 3 hour course on Trauma for Parents; and a 3 hour course on Trauma for Workers. In addition they will be coached to offer the Life Skills and train others to offer it as well.
We did not travel empty handed - as we brought a full suitcase of books! Field Guides to Child Welfare, Wounded Children Healing Homes and of course the Life Skill Books. We will leave trainer guides, power points and electronic version of all the materials with them. Equipping a nations trainers with tools to make a difference - carrying out Ephesians 4:12-17 and loving the process.
