Fellows should break up the CAT team members into a maximum of 4 groups. Each group will work on the following tasks;

 

  • Discuss and write down their top 3 child rights violation priority issues in their communities.

 

  • If they had all the resources they need, write down what they think could be done to help solve these top 3 rights issues.

 

  • Next, Each group member should share with the rest of the group what they believe their God-given, skills and talents are : Give them a list of preselected talents and skills, to help give them an idea of what a skill and talent is.

Selasi explained the meanings of talent and skills to the participants. He said, “talent is a God given skill. ”  He went further to explain that, “talents would go to waste when a person does not work on their talent and perfect it by practising often.”  And, “Skill is the expertise that one has to do a particular task ”. The participants gave examples of talents as singing, playing football, art/drawing etc. They mentioned some examples of skill as teaching, football, modelling etc.

We closed the meeting shortly after this part of the meeting because time was far spent and meeting closed at 4:25pm.

 

Challenges:

Time management. Not all the fellows had the schedule and those who had it came in late. Before that we did not have a meeting before CAT meeting day. We have resolved to have meetings before CAT meeting days and also make sure atleast we all have a hard copy of the CAT schedule for the term.
