Sixteen People Participated in the First Basic Empowerment Workshop in Tagbilaran City, Philippines

A total of 16 participants completed the first Basic Empowerment Workshop in Tiptip, Tagbilaran City, Philippines. This community workshop was made possible through the support and organization of the participants of the last Empowerment workshop in 2018. By far, it was the most diverse group of attendees with teachers from all over Bohol making up 50% of participants.

The workshop taught me how to transform negative actions are thinking to positive ones which then will help me deal with violence in the future.

The workshop helped me connect and understand how to become a good companion.  I understood what is going on inside me when I’m faced with violence.
