In early February 5 trainees attended an ICDP workshop as part of their training to become qualified ICDP trainers.
This project represents cooperation between ICDP, the Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and Fundatia Umanitara Pacea (FUP), (Humanitarian Foundation for Peace). The goal is to increase the psycho-social wellbeing for children in the Bacau region, through improved parent-child communication. FUP is a non-political, non-governmental organization founded in 2000 by the Franciscan order with the purpose of assisting poor and marginalized people with a special focus on children’s and young people’s education.
The February workshop was the second ICDP workshop at trainer level attended by this group of professionals from FUP. As a result they are now ready to start training new people to become ICDP facilitators. They are expected to complete their training projects by September 2017. This group will become the second group of ICDP qualified trainers operating in the region of Bacau, Romania - the first group was linked to the SOS Children's Villages Romania organization.
