After a successful morning
of learning some Play for Peace games and techniques, Play for Peace master trainers Swati Bhatt
and Agyat Shunya
worked with the various teachers in Shwebo to conduct their own Play for Peace sessions with local children.
The children were divided into three groups of different age groups. For nearly 3 hours, the new Play for Peace facilitators kept the children engaged and helped them work through the challenges that were presented to them.
The children loved it!
