Capacitar: A Brief History

Mary Litell led the first workshops and trainings in Mwanza and Arusha, Tanzania (2002-2004) coordinated by Pat Gallogly MM, and Costancia Mbgoma. The team has offered outreach to schools, religious, teachers, HIV/AIDS patients, caregivers, families, domestic violence centers, single mothers, street children, trade centers, prisons, refugees, clinics and pastoral centers. Trainings are offered in Arusha, Mwanza and other parts of Tanzania.

In 2010, Dr.Genevieve van Waesberghe.MMM offered sessions in Arusha. Among the participants were mental health professionals, women from the Shia Muslim Community and educators working with children with special needs and disabilities.

In March 2011 began a Trauma Healing and Transformation Training (3 modules) that will be completed in November. Participants include the personnel of the Arusha Mental Health Trust and several of their community outreach partners, some of them working with youth, schools, mentally challenged children.
