Abangane Training: CBOs in the Western Cape
By Lira Greeff (Programme Manager)
At the end of July we had the privilege to train 25 individuals from various CBO’s in the Western Cape. The training was conducted in Oudsthoorn, focusing on how to appropriately support bereaved children.
During the four days training the participants shared their own stories of loss and indicated that they felt personally empowered to use the skills acquired to help their own families and the families they work with.
What struck us about the group was the feedback that the training came just at the right time. At the right time for them personally, as well as professionally. Several participants had stories of how they got the invitation to attend directly after they became aware of their own need to learn more about the topic of grief and loss.
