Yesterday was our last morning with the children, youth workers and teachers at the Friendship Center in Gaibandha.
And it was tremendous.
Robert has had TOT (Train of Trainers) sessions since we arrived. At his last teaching class he had split the trainers into 4 groups. Each group should organise a small performance of maximum 15 minutes. He has given them some instruction such as: use of voice, co-leading the show, and most important: motivate the audience and include them by organizing something interactive. They could use some of the various instruments at their disposal.
The groups did really well and the ambiance in the room was highly electric.
The students of the char schools, members of the Char Theater group (who had just started their repetitions of the next 5 days) as well as all the members of Friendship Inclusive Citizenship team were following the shows.
After the performance of the last group, we continued to sing, dance and play percussion, led by Robert who literally enchanted everybody.
It was a tremendous closing of the 4 days training sessions as you can see on the pictures and on the following short movies.
