In Adendan Village, one of the Nubian villages, we are training Community Health Education (CHE) volunteers. We now have 35 volunteers in Adendan, including women, men and young adults. The training sessions are four hours per day and we hold the sessions four days a week. The villagers really enjoy the sessions.
