1- Tell us a bit about yourself (where are you from, where do you live, what are you studying and how do you spend your free time)

My name is Clara Mduma, I live in Dar es salaam, Tanzania. I completed in 2013 a Bachelor of Commerce in Finance and a Major in Corporate Finance at the University of Dodoma.


The Global Network of Religions for Children, GNRC, Dominican Republic in collaboration with Arigatou International Geneva, organized a Basic Training Workshop on how to use the Learning to Live Together (LTLT) Programme.

The workshop took place in San Victor, Moca from 3 to 6 June 2015 and targeted 30 educators from faith-based organizations, working directly with children, that are committed to implement the LTLT systematically in their organizations.

Arigatou International Geneva, in partnership with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology of Kenya (MoEST) and UNESCO Regional Office for East Africa, have developed an initiative to implement the Learning to Live Together (LTLT) Programme in Tana River, one of the counties in Kenya affected by tribal violence.

Since February 2015, trained teachers from 13 different schools have been implementing the LTLT Programme after participating in two training workshops for them to learn how to use the manual and develop facilitation skills. A workshop for the head teachers of these schools was held on 11 May to deepen their understanding of the Programme, respond to questions and get their full involvement as the program evolves. Following this meeting, a workshop for the teachers was held from 12 to 15 May to develop further facilitation skills and introduce them to project development and how to support children to initiate collective actions. Experiencing the workshop themselves helped them to get more involved and committed with the next phase of the pilot , which involved child-led projects.
