Training the Trainers (April 2018)

The T.E.A Project are grateful to have been invited back by The POWER Foundation to Badulla; heart of the Central tea plantation community in Sri Lanka.
Over 2 days the T.E.A Project facilitated another successful 'Training the Trainers' (TTT) event . 'TTT' is a leadership programme for professionals working with children. Professionals from 10 schools attended; deputy heads, government trainers & teachers. Attendees learned skills from our L.I.F.E (Leadership, Independence, Futures & Empowerment) programme.
''In 19 years as a teacher i never done training like this - everybody was a leader; we are all equal''.
At the end of the training attendees made a pledge to implement when they returned to schools. Some pledged to tackle drug and alcohol problems, others to provide training for teaching staff and to immediately implement skills learned into teaching methods.
TTT & LIFE are central to the ethos of The TEA Project; gifting people freely with the skills that will help provide sustainable routes out of poverty.
The T.E.A Project and POWER Foundation are affiliated partners in Sri Lanka. POWER are a respected & established Sri Lankan non profit org; working at grassroots level for over 40 years to support tea plantation communities. Promoting awareness of gender equality, working to ease ethnic conflict and conduct peace building activities.
Thank you to The POWER Foundation for your kind & generous hospitality and to all the professionals who took part so enthusiastically during training.
