The friendship pie


A detailed description of the activity will be provided here right after our training session. This will help you reflect on it and comment below by providing feedback to the trainer.

Step 1 (5 min)
Participants are asked to work with their group, exchange ideas and conclude on the ingredients they will put in their friendship pie. Then they are asked to write on their V-shaped paper strips and form their pie.
Step 2 (5 min) – Debriefing
Both groups are invited to present their friendship pies.
Participants are asked to reflect on the activity and discuss based on some of the following questions.
Did this activity help you realize that different people may have different criteria for choosing their friends?
Did this activity help you understand that each person holds diverse values and priorities which inevitably dictate who will be closer to them?
Did the activity made you understand that you can still enjoy other people’s company as long as you accept their preferences?
