Counseling Training for Staff
Vulnerable families are often subject to abuse and trauma. They carry heavy burdens and often are in need of a listening ear, words of encouragement, advice and prayer. Our field staff are wonderful people who love those they serve. Because of the nature of our relationships with the families in our ministry and our deep desire to walk alongside them well, sometimes we can be triggered by their trauma and begin to burn out.
As we seek to serve our families to the best of our ability, we see a need to provide more training and professional development for Hagari staff. We want to equip our staff to better serve and support the families that they work with, as well as to recognize in themselves where they need healing from past hurts and to get help if they need it. With that in mind we have identified a recommended Counseling Training here in Kigali that would be extremely beneficial for our staff. It is a six month training and the cost is $400 per person. We would like to send eight staff to this training, bringing the total to $3,200.
Thank you for considering making this possible for our staff!
