Press Releases / Tearfund Youth Leader Training Takes Place in Howth


Tearfund Youth Leader Training DayYouth leaders and those involved in youth ministry met in St Mary’s Parish, Howth, on Saturday for a youth facilitation workshop run by Tearfund in conjunction with Dublin & Glendalough Youth Council. The training focused on skills, knowledge and resources which help mobilise youth groups to act for a more just and sustainable world and the day was very much enjoyed by all who took part.

The group was joined by Ephraim Kahsay, Tearfund’s Country Representative in Ethiopia. Based in Addis Ababa, his passion is to see people lifted out of poverty and this shone through in his contribution on Saturday.

Ephraim has worked with Tearfund for the last nine years in the development, implementation and management of several ongoing programmes including self–help group work, church and community mobilisation, HIV/Health and livelihoods. The self–help group programme has been particularly successful and has seen over a million people lifted out of poverty in Ethiopia since 2002.

Saturday’s event was the first of a two part workshop. The second will take place on March 25. Email dgyc.office@gmail.com for details.
