A closing ceremony was held on Wednesday, June 06, 2012, at Fido’s Restaurant and Bar where participants were given a certificate of completion for the course.
During the workshop topics covered were identifying the different types of domestic abuse, the cycle of violence and most importantly how to help those who are victims of domestic violence. The workshop was facilitated by the Human Development coordinator in the Women’s Department Cynthia Williams and Makesha Suazo.
