DARE TO CONNECT

A new way of relating 

DARE to Connect began as a research project on teaching couples with histories of intimate partner violence partnership skills. The project was successful, and soon Paramount Chiefs asked us to scale the program up. That is when we turned it over to our champion couples and social workers. Today, they use a Train-The-Trainer model to teach couples across the region these important skills. Couples in Tikonko came up with the idea that instead of giving them travel money to teach other couples, we should help them create a sustainable community cassava business. We purchased an industrial grater and a building and now DARE champions are in business! DARE to Connect grew from there when a 10-year-old child, Emmanuel Bockarie, suggested we train cliques (youth gangs) in schools effective ways to socialize. We taught a few pilot groups, conducted research, and the schools are asking for more!
