The group of youth community promoters at the Center participated yesterday in a workshop on personal safety. They discussed and practiced personal safety techniques, including how to confront street harassment. Batahola volunteer Sam Estes helped to facilitate along with Ivania Pineda (psychologist, “Promoting Gender-Based Violence Prevention” at the Center.
Note: the neck grabs and intense faces were part of the practice exercises…they didn’t actually hurt one another! Laughs included, the workshop brought up important issues and necessary skills.
