To give the participants general test.
Introduction Giving participants general test was something Manuela has been avoiding thinking that the community members may not buy the ideas, but this time she decided to go and give the community members that test so that she can be certain that what she taught was either understood or not. Overview Manuela reached the village and found members waiting for her and ready to take their test, she greeted them and asked if they are ready for the test all responded yes in loud voices, after that they started, Manuela would ask for questions and they would answer very first but some of the questions they struggled a lot to answer more especially the first topics taught at the beginning of the program. Manuela carried out that exercise with the help of the one of the participants called marry a Nassarrey Teacher, Manuela would read in English then the Mary would explain it more in local language for faster understanding, during this exercise, the women participated the men that made women to take more gifts than the men. After the test, Manuela and the participants selected the team which will go on teaching life skills program, the team said that they will make sure they don’t miss any gatherings in the community for example like funerals, weeding, community meetings so that they can pass some of the like skills information to people around. And that is how they will continue with that program. Otherwise they also said that it will be difficult to conduct classes as I use to do because community members will always want a new face. Finally, Manuela notice that participants in Bukudomira are very smart to answer all the questions set for them, she told them that, today was end of program in that village, she recommended the community empowerment program with the infect of January 2121.
