training of trainers in conducting psychosocial support for women

During the past three months, and in partnership with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Middle East, "Sawa for Dev and Aid" was able to successfully complete a project in its women center in Bar Elias, Al Beqaa. In the first phase, Sawa hosted a capacity building workshop for its staff as well as for a number of women from diverse NGOs working with Syrian refugees for a training of trainers (ToT) in two parts in which they were trained in conducting psychosocial support for women. In the second phase, awareness and psychosocial support sessions were conducted over the months for women in the camps. We would like to extend a special thanks to inspiring Syrian women who attended the sessions wholeheartedly, but also for exceptional people working with very high ethics: the trainer Sabine Choucair, our staff, and the volunteers who operated the project at a very minimal cost and who donated their salaries/per diem to Sawa to use where most needed.
