December has been a busy and rewarding month! We have visited Kofiloko a couple of times and selected 20 young mothers to be a part of the program.
Yesterday, these 20 participants came for an introductory session in anticipation of the formal start on Monday. It was great to meet everyone and to see their excitement and eagerness to start the program.
On Monday, we will begin with 3 days focusing on “ourselves”. This includes topics such as culture and values, self esteem, our rights as women and an introduction to gender.
Our practical skill focus for the first week is Papermaking. We will be recycling and making new paper to use for gift wrapping and packaging. Participants will be encouraged to use their creativity and come up with new things to make with their hand-made paper.
We are busy preparing FANTASITC screen printed bags and materials for the course. Our energy is high and we are looking forward to the week ahead!
