LOCAL ORGANIZATION GIVES BACK TO COMMUNITY YOUTHS THROUGH CONFLICT RESOLUTION WORKSHOPS
BASSETERE, St. Kitts., (May 22)-The Dream Achievers Education Foundation aka DAeF hosted a series of workshops at six primary schools throughout St. Kitts. The workshop’s theme was, “Conflict Resolution: Dealing with Anger.” The first leg of the activities began on Thursday, March 15 at the Estridge Primary School with 30 students in grades four and five who learned ways to manage anger, how to communicate negative feelings and identify how to handle problems constructively. The sessions concluded at the Cayon Primary School on Tuesday, May 23, 2018, with approximately 40 students.
The Foundation collaborated with the Office of the Dean of Students at the University of the Virgin Islands. Mrs. Hedda Finch-Simpson, the Interim Dean of Students, delivered a very interactive and stimulating presentation to the students on conflict resolution. In her delivery, the students had the opportunity to participate in hands-on learning problem-solving scenarios to assist them in coping with real life conflicting situations. Ms. Necola Charles, the Founder and President of the Foundation, spearheaded the workshops and also gave an enriching presentation on the topic. At the end of the activity, the students participated in a Conflict Resolution Family Feud Challenge and were divided into two teams and quizzed on the presentation material.
In an effort to build cohesive communities, the foundation organized the workshops that provided practical learning opportunities for youths within the rural areas of St. Kitts. The Foundation would like to extend its appreciation to the Ministry of Education as well as the students and staff of the Estridge Primary School, the Violet Petty Primary School, the Joshua Obadiah Primary School, the Edgar T. Morris Primary School, the Saddlers Primary School and the Cayon Primary School for their participation. Sponsors of the project included Hope by Help, SKN IT Solutions, SKN Pulse, The Merch Shop, RAMS Wholesale and Eqnoxx Multimedia Productions.
