TAMCC Super Saturday Sessions

TAMCC’s Super Saturday Sessions was funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI). The series of sessions started on Saturday 13th October, 2018 with its first session on Sexual and Gender Based Violence and Social Welfare. Thirty (30) participants aged 13-57 years were engaged in plenary and small group discussions on topics including the core concepts, causes and consequences of sexual and gender based violence, self-care, survivor’s needs, sources of support for social welfare and local laws that pertain to sexual and gender based violence. The day’s agenda was conducted in two (2) sessions by the dynamic facilitators Ms. Laurel Victor and Mrs. Jacqueline Sealy-Burke. The course participants were in high praise of the content and practical exercises in which they were engaged.

Ms. Ayanna Williams, Coordinator of Resource Mobilisation at TAMCC who was serving as the Project Lead commented on the overwhelming response of the public to the call for participants in this inaugural training initiative. Ms. Williams stated, “Before we could engage in paid for advertisements, we were already at capacity for all six TAMCC’s Super Saturday Sessions. This speaks both to the power and reach of social media and more importantly, to the demand for this training methodology which goes beyond the theoretical approach and provides survivors and potential victims with practical skill sets that are applicable to their everyday lives”.  

The other completed courses in TAMCC’s Super Saturday Sessions were Basic Self Defence, Personal Financial Management, Business Plan Writing, Basic Home and Car Repairs and Basic First Aid.
