This activity aims to promote self-esteem while demonstrating diversity and solidarity within the group.

Instructions

1.     Ask everyone to stand in a very wide circle.
2.     Invite someone (anyone) to take a step into the circle and to say something s/he is good at.
3.     Now tell the rest of the group to take a step forward and repeat the name and what s/he is good at.
4.     Now invite someone else to take a turn and to take another step forward.

Tips for facilitatorsGoto top

Make the initial circle as big as possible so that there is still space for each round as the circle gradually gets smaller. At the end, the participants will be standing very close together.
