We supported Dr Esther Joosa to implement a train-the-trainers workshop titled “Empowering Communities through Arts Education” from 7 to 14 May in Tamil Nadu, India. 25 social workers from four NGOs learnt how to incorporate the arts within their care-giving practices for communities affected by HIV.

The eight-day workshop commenced with an overview of arts-based initiatives designed for community development, and was followed by one-on-one mentorship sessions with Dr Joosa. Some 100 children and parents affected by HIV were involved in such activities during the workshop.
