During this month, TSP training took place in Mumbai. 21 Participants attended, facilitated by Sayyid Aliraza Naqvi and sister Fatma Naqvi. In this session, the Teacher's skills program updated teachers on new methodologies of teaching.
We received the following feedback from the participants:
Tafseer: 'I was very afraid to come to this program because I had a sick daughter at home. Although I was advised not to attend, and not leave my daughter for two whole days.
But I am glad I used my own intuition and attended the session. Due to me attending now I will be able to take care of her and raise her in a better way.'
Firdaus: “What I didn't learn in 54 years of my life, I learned it in two days.”
Shabnam: “A million thanks to Asad bhai to inviting me to this session. It was a mind changing and life changing experience for me. It wouldn't have been possible without your positive push JazakAllah”
The overall feedback in the room was the teachers are looking forward to implement the newly learnt skills in their madressa. An initiative has begun to open a new Madressa.
