Learning Objectives
For the leaders to know Kibo’s intention of introducing Life Skills as a new program to the village leaders
Introduction Lorna went here to introduce Life Skills Education and Counseling to the leaders of Bukhudumira village. Overview Sine Lorna did not know this village well, she had communicated to the leaders to meet her at the School(Bukhudumira P/S) , so that they can go to the village together. Lorna waited about 20 minutes and no one was coming and she decided to go to the School where she asked for direction from a certain man she found building the borehole fence at the School. This borehole was repaired by Kibo but the fence was no longer there and Lorna and Manuela advised the headmistress to replace the fence. Lorna was happy to see that they were putting up a fence. This man told Lorna to follow her up to Franks home a VHT. On their way however they met Frank on his way to the village and so they went together to the village. Frank decided to move around looking for the Chairman and his committee but only a few managed to make it and Lorna told them to pass the information to those not around. They started by introducing themselves then Lorna introduced herself last as from Kibo group with an intention of introducing a different program Life Skills Education and Counseling. She briefly told them that they recently started working in this community however at the primary School. She told them of this programs interest in working with them if they would be receptive. She briefly talked of the topics under Life Skills and what each topic entails. Some of the topics mentioned are ; HIV/AIDS Skills, Decision Making, Communication Skills among others. After her communication she asked for reactions. The defense said she welcomed this program to this village as it has important lessons to learn, the chairperson Ali was also very welcoming and so was Paul a community member and Frank the VHT. Lorna mentioned that they intend to start in April as this is when the pupils would have broken off for holidays. They also talked of the day and Time. They were open to Wednesday or Friday and the time they agreed upon after negotiation was 1:30pm. Conclusion Lorna thanked them for welcoming her and told them she will call them in advance and let them know when her or Manuela would be coming.
