Since summer 2016 the Power of Goodness project has expanded into Ingushetia and Dagestan. In August and September, trainings for trainers from these republics were conducted by trainers from the Chechen project in Grozny. From September, the Ingush and Dagestani trainers began conducting seminars in schools for teachers in their republics, supported by their Chechen colleagues.
The second edition of this tri-lingual book in Chechen, Russian and English was published last year. 6000 copies were printed by publishers in Chechnya, donors included the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and Friends’ International Library.
Files and images are available at UPLOADS.
