What I Learnt At the 2019 Women Arise Leadership Training
By Doris Jenis Adamu
The 2019 Women Arise Leadership Conference was held in Arusha, Tanzania, and I was present as the representative from Nigeria together with Dr. Mrs. Rhoda Gawarto Manzo. It lasted for a week and was aimed at educating and equipping our team on the values of communication for resilience in trauma affected communities. Nigeria has been faced with much trauma, thereby triggering the need for such knowledge on how to manage, handle, and curtail such situations, and also how to communicate with trauma survivors.
I intend to apply everything I have learnt through my communication processes, having a sense of self-integrity, being trustworthy, remaining positive, and being a good listener to the traumatized. I connect well with community members and will continue working to understand them, all while using communication technologies like the phone, radio, television, Harper Hill Global’s Visual Classroom, and the Internet. My plan is to use these platforms to relate crucial information and knowledge about everything I have learnt because knowledge shared is a bold step towards achieving a better and peaceful community.
