Life Skills Conference

Earlier this month my counterparts Tunga, Erdenechimeg and I were able to spend 4 days in Choibalsan, the fourth largest city in Mongolia about 5 hours north of where we live, to attend an HIV/AIDS Life Skills Seminar. It was tons of fun and we had a wonderful time. It was all done in Mongolian, so Alex, I and the other Peace Corps Volunteers were able to help out and observe a lot of the training, but it was definitely geared toward our counterparts' development. They did scenarios, talked about ideas for training youth, discussing sex and relationships and then did practice teaching together in three different teams. It was great to watch them have fun together, laugh during presentations and get so close to one another in such a short period of time. Thank you to Peace Corps for organizing such a great seminar, I am very proud that we were able to provide it to all of our Mongolian coworkers and friends.
