Nursery student play oustide on a slide during their breaks.
We worked with local women to plan a march, dinner, and concert to appreciate women for International Women's Day. The women made a banner with the theme, a set of posters of words that describe women written on flower petals, which we chanted as we marched - "Women are strong! Women are beautiful! Women are talented" etc... It was a lovely evening that was almost destroyed by rain, but the men helped us move all our equiptment for the concert (speakers, decorations, microphones)...
Two trainees help each other learn how to weave traditional baskets from palm leafs to strengthen their awareness of local knowledge and culture, as well as confidence in personal identity. This was a part of a training to prevent human trafficking and labor exploitation.
