A big round of applause for our SETS girls who’ve just completed our 3-day Youth Leadership Workshop!
The workshop aimed to build the foundation for leadership in our SETS Youth; primarily focussing on self-reflection and confidence in communication. It was an excellent opportunity to help our youth not only as budding leaders but also as individuals, where they learned to channel a ‘growth mindset’ so that they can embrace challenges and accept criticism with ease.
The girls were very active participants so every workshop was a flurry of activity and discussions. They were very keen to learn new skills and how to tackle problems that they were unsure of. A big section of the training was dedicated to being conscious of yourself and others around; specifically how your thinking, actions, and method of communication effects how you are perceived by others.
At the end of the workshops, the many youths commented that “more [workshops] would be good because I think there is still a lot more to learn…”. MWASA is very glad to have provided the opportunity for our SETS Youth to grow and learn, and make new friends.
MWASA would be very keen to hold similar workshops for our youth in the future. Will you be joining us then?
Our SETS Youth enjoyed the Saturday morning of April 10th participating in an energizing indoor soccer tournament; the perfect gathering before the start of the month of Ramadan.
Despite some not having played the sport before, the support from the other more experienced girls was definitely an encouragement. It gave our SETS Youth the opportunity to interact with others in their community as well as participate in something new. To see the collective team effort put into the games was amazing.
The post-game treat of pizza was definitely a good note to end the day for everyone, especially for the winning team that brought home a bag of prizes from their successful game!
During the down-time, many suggested other possible social sport they would like to participate in; it is safe to say that MWASA will definitely be holding another social sport event for our SETS Youth in the near future!
