CEF recently ran a Life Skills Workshop on 'Communication Skills', which was most successful.
This important workshop was possible due to financial support from Go Philanthropic. We at CEF are most grateful as are our Quang Nam and Da Nang high school and university students who thoroughly enjoyed the day as well as finding it very useful.
We were fortunate to have a wonderful teacher for the day, Ms Huyen, who was from Blue Dragon Children's Foundation. She has experience in teaching this subject, but also knows how to retain the interest of the students by including many enjoyable games that showed what she was talking about.
The students worked in groups and took turns in presenting group decisions and ideas. They worked on verbal communication, communication by body language, non verbal cooperation as well as social media communication especially about Facebook.
As Facebook is the means by which a lot of human trafficking takes place these days we felt it was crucial to have the students fully understand the advantages and disadvantages of using Facebook and how they can use it wisely. Games, role play and discussions were used to understand this crucial communication method.
We are very grateful for the support from Blue Dragon Children's Foundation for sharing their wonderful Ms Huyen who ran this excellent day.
I was very happy with our hard-working staff who planned, helped and managed the day as well as the help of the three dynamic joyful volunteers.
Big thanks to all who helped and supported us to run this day.
