A team from ACC and ECCD & SEN Division of MoE conducted a two-day rollout workshop on DAMTSI Activity Book for Dzongkhag Education Officers and ECCD facilitators of the southern region (Sarpang Dzongkhag, Gelephu Thromde, Samtse Dzongkhag, Phuentsholing Drungkhag, and Phuntsholing Thromde) from 11- 20 October 2021, in their respective area. A total of 86 participants, including three Dzongkhag Education Officers, one Thromde Education officer, one principal, and 81 ECCD facilitators attended the training. The participants are expected to implement it in their respective centres with immediate effect.
The DAMTSI (Developing Accountable and Morally, Trustworthy and Successful Individuals) Activity Book for ECCDs was developed to build a culture of integrity and instill a sense of intolerance to corruption right from a very young age under ECCD’s domain of Moral Development. This is expected to promote the three core anti-corruption values and principles of honesty, responsibility, and fairness among the ECCD children to establish a basic foundation of ethical behaviour and moral intelligence in our children through the conduct of wide-ranging activities for both children and parents, as detailed in the activity book. The team also conducted the Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop in the three regions viz Central, Eastern, and Western in August, 2021. The participants will further rollout the training at the Dzongkhag level for other ECCD facilitators tentatively in February, 2022.
