A day capacity building workshop was organized for volunteers which aimed at providing adequate skills for the volunteers in the execution of the piloted Rural Peace Project. The volunteers are engaging in various activities (Teaching, formation of Peace Fellowship Networks, Community house-to-house and mass education, Game for Peace) in the various schools they have been posted to. The workshop was preceded by a meeting between the volunteers and coordinators of the project to know the challenges confronting the volunteers in the field.

Presentations were make by:

Mr. Daniel Boateng (Programmes Director-AFCOPB) -on the topic: strategies in formation the Peace Fellowship Network, challenges and the way forward.

He began by touching on the significance of forming of PFN's at the grassroots. To start the Fellowship these steps cannot be over looked:

1. Informing the Head of the school and convince him/her to

believe in the idea of forming the PFN and its significance to the school and the students (academic and social). 2. Lobby the Head to be the Patron and ask him/her to recommend some teachers that could serve as advisors. 3. Get a student (s) friend (s) and explain the concept to him/her or them and appoint him/her or them as Acting Executives. 4. Start making announcement for interested students to write down their names with any of the acting leaders. 5. schedule a first meeting ...click here to download full version

Miss. Patience Awadzi (Director, Lean-on Foundation) - on the topic: Altitude at Work.

She began by defining what altitude is and also asked the participants their view and understanding of ATITUDE.

HOW IS ATTITUDE FORMED?
Our experiences and the kind of people we associate with (i.e. nature and nurture) shape our

opinions and feelings about issues, life, cultures of other people, work etc. Acquisition of knowledge through education later also adds up greatly to shaping our attitudes.
Eg. Attitude about the importance of girl-child education, about government work, etc.

Cletus asks question...

 

Mrs. Mary Adonia (Assit. Secretary, GNAT-Volta Region)- on the topic: effective teaching and learning skills.

She started by defining what teaching and learning is, and also explained what teaching and learning is when the adjective 'effective' is added to the words 'teaching and learning'.

In the process of explaining teaching, she pointed out the relationship between the word 'impact' and

'teaching'. She is of the view that teaching is a game of sharing knowledge between some one who has more than the other....

Methods of effective teaching:

1. Test the level of knowledge of students on the subjects you are teaching

2. Consider the teaching and learning materials available... click here to download full version

 

 

 

Edwin Warden tells his challenges on the field

Mr. Emmanuel K. Senyo Kumedzina (Director-Peace & Conflicts, AFCOPB)- on the topics: 1. what is peace and conflict, 2. Dealing with rural folks, 3. Challenges at work as voluntary teacher.

He opened the workshop session with a speech which he called on the youth to think of doing what should benefit them tomorrow rather than considering the luxury of today. He said it is time that we ( the youth) must stop relying on politicians or people who have already made it in life because they (especially politicians) will not give you what is sustainable enough: for if's sustainable, you might not do those works for him or her any more...read more

He started his workshop presentation by defining what is peace and conflict, and what constitute these two words. He gave the types of peace and conflict.

One the second topic he mentioned that volunteers or any other rural developer must take into consideration is the perceptions and contributions of the rural folks if one want to achieve results.
