Training and Reviewing

Our regular progress review meeting was held in March 2018 bringing together the chairperson, two of our trustees, the executive management and all our trainers for a discussion to review the progress of our work. In addition to this our senior trainers from the west and south conducted training of trainers workshops in the north and east during the month of June this year.


Trainers in our Batticaloa, Mullaitivu, Jaffna and Mannar workshops were trained by eight of our senior trainers through two day performances in each location. They were trained with new disability arts techniques to be used in the regular workshops and drama techniques to be used in their upcoming performances in August 2018. The workshops are currently rehearsing for their performances which will take the stage in Jaffna on the 01st of August 2018, in Mannar on the 02nd of August 2018 and Mullaitivu on the 03rd of August 2018. The workshops not only gave the trainers knowledge but was a great team building and cultural experience for all.
