Leadership Program at Lagje Mirdita, Durres.
Over the past month, the Leadership Group has led a number of very important Capacity Building training sessions: Learning how to work on Power Point Presentations, Communication Skills, Presentation Skills, Public Speaking and Identifying and Referring cases of Human Trafficking in their community, were some of the topics discussed on Fridays at Lagje Mirdia. Their second Social Activity took place at the end of the past month, offering food and clothing to a poor family next to their homes. It was a success for the leadership group, which tested and put in practice their organizational and fund-raising skills, in a minor way. At the moment, the group is preparing its third Social Activity; a full day in service of a vulnerable target group.
On the 16th of December 2016, the first Leadership training was held at “Lagje Mirdita”, in Durres. Although part of Durres municipality, this neighborhood suffers a high level of marginalization and is composed of a homogeneous community of migrants from the region of Mirdita. 13 boys and girls from the MWL Youth group are committed to following the MWL Youth Leadership Program and are being trained in leadership skills. The purpose is to enable them to become transformed into important actors of their community and beyond. The 1st training delivered by MWL Psychologist Trainer, Zana Guri, has offered a wide panorama of what Leadership means and how it can become a touchable concept also for these youngsters raised in difficult backgrounds.
