On Friday 6th December the YOURS Training of Facilitators completed its two week programme in Nairobi, Kenya! The programme was an incredible success with 14 youth leaders from a range of local and national Kenyan NGOs trained on key road safety theory and facilitation skills.
Over the past two weeks, we have placed a major feature on the YOURS website on our Capacity Development Training in Nairobi, Kenya. Last week, we completed our two weeks YOURS training programme that 'Trained the Facilitators', a group of talented youth leaders from leading road safety non-governmental organizations from across Kenya.
Week one was a successful exploration of key road safety theory workshops from the scope of the road safety problem in the world and Kenya, how crashes happen, youth and road traffic injuries, distracted driving, speeding, helmet usage as well as key facilitation skills; the key attributes of peer educators, presenters vs. facilitators, fundamentals of human learning and so forth. The training was completely youth orientated; created by and for young people with a range of brain friendly learning sessions which coupled art, theatre, creativity, debate, games and music to transmit road safety messages.
In week two, the participants firstly watched demonstration workshops and then prepared for their own workshops, which they delivered midweek. On practical feedback and analysis as well as individual feedback on facilitation skills, the participants completed the two week programme!
YOURS Director, Floor Lieshout thanks partners in the closing ceremony of the two week programme.
Further follow up is now placed into the hands of the young leaders who will now run their own youth and road safety workshops across Kenya over the coming year and beyond supported by their organizations. A video report of the event will come shortly!
We take this opportunity to thank our partners for making the Kenya Training of Facilitators happen. For more information about our Capacity Development Programme, click here.
