Participants will be able to identify good communication skills Overview When Manuela reached the village she did not find any person at the meeting place but she found when they have put the chairs. Manuela sat for some minutes and the participants started to come. After that the meeting started and it was opened by a woman called Hadija after that Manuela told the participants what they were going to learn, but previously she left them with the home work about communication skills, Manuela asked the community members if they have searched for that only three people did that home work, Manuela asked to share their ideas for example one said that is the understanding between people, the other person said that it means talking and listening with one another then the third person said that communication when a woman and a man comes round table to decide for their family development.

They responded that some how they are not perfect they still have a gap. Reactions Some of the community members reacted that their women sometimes don’t speak to them properly and also the women said that it’s cut to way their husbands approach them and the children too. Manuela advised the both parties to be good communicator to one another so that have happily family, Manuela urged the parents to learn how to speak with their children so they can grow up as well behaved children in the society.
