Congratulations to Gilberte, Bemahafaly, and Vola! They have just received their seed funding for trainer's projects and are busy planning their trainings. Also, Derta Prabuning, a participant in the 2012 Training of Trainer's workshop in Bali, Indonesia, recently completed his Trainer's Project! Here's a summary of his workshop. 

Gilberte will be leading a workshop for agencies in the Seychelles who are involved in coral reef management and conservation. The workshop will focus on monitoring plans, and she hopes to develop this into a future bleaching response plan for the country. 

Bemahafaly is leading a workshop with the Wildlife Conservation Society in Madagascar on Reef Resilience, and plans to integrate reef resilience principles into management plans for several MPAs in the country. 

Vola's trainer's project is unique! Not only is she running a training for several communities on the impacts of climate change, but she is also planning a 12-episode series of radio broadcasts in the local language, intended to inform a wide audience of the importance of protecting coral reefs. 

We'll be sending funds out shortly to another large handful of participants in the Zanzibar Training of Trainer's workshop, and I'll keep you updated!
