“Marian Akhi, I am the Camp for my organization. As a Camp Team, I have the opportunity to do Over 30 Camps in a Year. So I have Contact and good relation with many of Children workers in Bangladesh. So for the Camp, I have to go different places in Bangladesh for doing the Ministry with the Children directly.

I had an Opportunity to attend training on Trauma in Bangladesh in 2015 and 2016 with Ruby and Lynn. From that Training, I have learned a lot about understanding the impact of Trauma and importance to have the attachment with children and parents. That Training was so helpful for me to understand the Children and their mind according to the age level.

Because of I am working and do Camp in rural Villages and most of the Children comes in that camp from different families. These Children are really vulnerable.

Before the Training, I have cared for my camp Kids but at that time I did not understand the cause of the different of the understanding level of kids. But after getting those two Training I equipped myself and now my passion for the Children totally different and it increased a lot.

In my Camp, I have found many children their growth and understanding level is different. Because of the Training which I have trained so now I can understand the level of the development of the Children. But because of the lack of knowledge most of our Caregivers, parents, and Teachers they misunderstood those children. So now when I have to go for Camp I treated kids from camp in different eyes with Love.

I also shared with the Care Givers and Workers about trauma and how it affected the kids. Last Year in 2016 I did 30 Camps and after and between the Camps I always share and encouraged to our Workers who worked with Kids Directly. So that they can take proper care of their kids."
