Our TOT on Citizenship Education
Went well. Most of the guys who applied were a bit older than we expected, but we had diverse range of organizations and backgrounds were represented. Hopefully some of these guys would start their own initiatives of civic education in their communities.
What Beyond Borders hopes to achieve is to create a bunch of people competent enough to run workshops with young people so that they get exposed to and start thinking about citizenship issues, something which doesn’t happen with the official education system in Sri Lanka.
Soon, we will be publishing a toolkit of sorts containing activities, games and sessions on citizenship issues. The toolkit can be utlizied by anyone with a passion and dedication for civic issues to design and run training sessions, workshops, etc. for young people. Watch this space for more. The project is supported by Oxfam Australia through OIYP.
