The objective of the game was to help them understand that a simple mistake made by one person could negatively affect the whole crew. Each person was therefore responsible for her own part, but know that her part played a role in the crew. It was a new approach at learning to support each other to meet a common goal.
The next game was to work together at tearing paper as per instructions giving. For example, one piece maybe be torn into one shape with 9 holes, another might be a different shape with only 2 holes. This game taught the girls that the general objective was the same, but each specific instruction meant a different solution had to be found. In order to resolve conflicts, they needed to learn to look at the problem from different angles.
Although short, the training course gave the children many interesting and different perspectives about taking responsibility and how to resolve conflicts. These things would help them support each other better, to love and understand each other, to continue living together as a family under OBV's roof.
