Tamil Nadu 16 December 2017: Jesuit Refugee Service Tamil Nadu organised a  State level staff and teachers’ Training and Get-together. The event, first of its kind, was held at Trichy Multi-purpose Social Service Society Campus, on 16th and 17th December. Two hundred teachers and 35 staff from field office and country office participated in the training.

The participants were divided into four groups and four training sessions were conducted in order to make the trainings more effective. Each session was activity-based and promoted the following skills: concentration, attentive listening, fast thinking, decision making, team-building, coordination-cum-organisation of team work, collaboration and cooperation, trust-building, responsible leadership, self-awareness, building confidence, conflict resolution, clear and assertive communication, improvisation of imagination, positive attitude, and identifying safe places and safe adults in view of strengthening child protection. Each participant realised that these useful skills could be easily transmitted to the children and other members of the refugee community in the camp.

The expert team of trainers included Mr Jambulingam, Dr Sritharan, Dr Sri Priya from Loyola team and Ms Mayra and Mr Jaume two Spanish volunteers from Clown Science Dreams Barcelona.

The event provided ample space for a get-together as JRS family and for fun and frolic. The post-supper get-together was marked by singing, dancing, poetry recitals, debate, and celebration of birthdays as well as Christmas.
