Formation only for formees?
Speaking with Cheryl yesterday, I asked myself a question. It was during our discussion regarding the whole process of 'facilitation' that an NGO wishes to organise as part of its empowerment programme. Transposing that idea into our formation sector, I realised that most often, we the formation staff think that we are in the formation house 'to form others'. What about our own formation? Should not the formation process, which we coordinate and expect to touch and form the students, impact us formators too?? Why do we shield ourselves from the 'formation' we claim to give to our students?
