There was a warm welcome from the participants. For few hours we were given sermons by the Chapter President, Bishop Michael, who introduced his team to the congregation.

There were about 33 people who were interested.

They were divided into two categories. This was done according how they have been participating on chapter event training for HRE that has been held all over the country.
The senior class had 15 students and the junior class had 18 students.

The first class was trained in Mt. Zion hall by the chapter lead trainer Mrs. Joyce. The materials she used in the training were from The Human Rights Education Handbook (Effective practices for learning, action and change)

The second class had 18 students. The majority has idea about HRE but had not gone a thorough training like the first class. They were trained at Jerusalem hall. They got their training in support of the book called Many Faiths, One Humanity.

The class was mentored by the other trainers under the supervision of the President and the secretary.

The training ended well with a ceremony awarding the first class with a participation certificate.

The training took two days. There were a few suggestions before it ended. The second class requested to have their final training on June this year, which shall be communicated later and shall depends on the availability of the funds.

The participants enjoyed a group photo at the end.
