Building Tomorrow’s LeadersJuly 12, 2017 4:26 pm
From 9 in the morning until 5 in the evening, the JBFC and TGFT girls attended leadership classes taught by Rwandan teachers. The classes taught the girls how to identify their strengths, seek opportunities, appoint a leader, and respect their values. When they returned home, the girls presented this information to the other JBFC girls. Zai, Rachel, Laurencia, and Teddy also hope to use these new leadership skills in the Girls’ Government and at school.
Zai, Rachel, Laurencia, and Teddy were so thankful for this opportunity and enjoyed their experience in Arusha. Laurencia, Teddy, and Rachel all liked meeting and getting to know the TGFT girls most of all. Teddy noticed they were “confident and charming”. Specifically, Zai revealed that her favorite part of the leadership camp was “getting to know people from Rwanda.” Zai learned that there are more women in Rwanda’s parliament than Tanzania’s.
We can’t wait to see how Zai, Rachel, Laurencia, and Teddy serve as leaders to make a difference in their community!
