A trainers’ workshop was organized with the workers of sSTEP (Society for Social Transformation and Environment Protection) from 23rd to 25th Dec 2010 at their office in Guwahati. The participants also included people from sSTEP Morigaon and development workers/volunteers from supporting organizations and children.
sSTEP is working with both urban and rural poverty issues in the Guwahati city, and these 18 enthusiastic participants created stories on the issues they encounter most often like child trafficking, environment sustainability issue in Morigaon, woes of the shelterless and so on. The children who participated in the workshop expressed the difficulties they face in their schools due to lack of basic facilities like bathroom and drinking water through the medium of comics.
