Training the Trainers – Enfants du Mékong Sisophon

From April 7 to 10, 15 social workers of Enfants du Mékong attended a training the trainers on financial education in Sisophon, Cambodia. As financial hardships have hit families and their children even harder during Covid pandemic, it has proved more important than ever to complement Enfants du Mekong’s support to families with money management basics, and to include these basics in the students’ curriculum. While nothing can replace an income, reducing exposure to debts, and managing money carefully can help families and their children minimise financial difficulties. On day 1, after an introduction on training methods, participants experienced the youth training that focuses on controlling expenses. On day 2, participants practised facilitating the youth training and experienced the family programme, that focuses on reducing debts. On day 3, participants practised facilitating the family programme, and on day 4, they facilitated it to 21 family members; the last half-day was spent on learning how to coach families on money issues, one-to-one. Coaching complements training efficiently.
