How are you feeling? Kids talk about life after a cyclone: Part 2

Punam, Shampa and 10 to 13 year olds

KYP Visit June 3, 2020

Two weeks after Amphan, a team of TF youth trainers visited the affected community at Mograhat (YRC KYP) to check in on how children were coping with the disaster and its aftermath.

How were they feeling, what were they thinking, what could be done to restore their sense of agency and control?

The facilitators worked with two batches of kids; 6 to 9, and 10 to 13 year olds. This post is about the older ones. Read our post on younger children

The kids:

  • 11 year olds: Ruhin, Rexsona, Sahina, Suhana, Sultana, Raniya
  • 12 year olds: Nasima, Lutfarnesa, Sunaiya, Sahil, Jishan, Jahiruddin
  • 13 year olds: Sarika, Sakil, Rohit

The facilitators worked with two batches of kids; 6 to 9, and 10 to 13 year olds. This post is about the younger children, who were enouraged to use Emotion puppets to talk about what they were going through. It helped to break the ice quickly, and immediately identify the kids who were too traumatised to open up. There were a couple of children who would not speak up, or break down and sob.

The kids
  • 7 year olds > Rifa, Shawdia, Rumana, Ruhana
  • 8 year olds > Tamanna, Ashifa, Nasim, Rakibul, Mokim
  • 9 year olds > Asadulla, Jahirana
