FYI: For the aforementioned programs, Ms.Tsering Choezom will be training the nuns on ‘Building Effective Communication Skills’, Ms.Tenzin Choezin will be leading the ‘Gender Sensitization Program’ and we also have Mr. Karma Lekshey la and Ms.Tenzin Yangkyi la from Tccr Dharamsala who will lead two days of training on ‘Conflict Resolution’. Apart from that, the training will allow spaces for the nuns to groom their leadership skills through indoor activities and outbound programs.
