9 September 2021. We conducted our second capacity building workshop as part of the new empowerment project for young people affected by leprosy that is taking pleace 2021-23 with the support from VOICE Indonesia. The participants were the “Sipakatau” team from PerMaTa Gowa, who had run the first VOICE empowerment project from 2017 to 2020.
The young women and men are now trained and are gaining practical experience to become facilitators for a new youth team of people affected leprosy.
The workshop took place outside in the park area of Benteng Somba Opu Fort near Makassar, and strict Covid protocols were implemented.
Practical training in the fields of communication, advocacy and report writing were part of the program to increase advocacy capacity.
The workshop went smoothly with lots of fun and new knowledge gained.
