MindLeaps Executive Director, Rebecca Davis, visited the Rwanda program in August. As part of her visit, she led an intensive Train the Trainer session for all MindLeaps trainers in Rwanda, including MindLeaps’ new trainers from Masoro. The training emphasized the importance of lesson planning for dance classes, focusing on the muscles, skills and strategies/techniques to achieve positive results in cognitive and socio-emotional learning development for participating children.
The new trainers from Masoro also taught dance classes with Rebecca in Masoro. This was a unique opportunity for them to see Rebecca’s teaching techniques, from skills development to connecting with children through specifically designed fun games and intentionally chosen music.
