UNODC, in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Medical Industry and the Ministry of Education of Turkmenistan, conducted the "Family and Schools Together" (FAST) workshop as a follow up to the next round of FAST activities which were launched in Ashgabat in 2011. The training was organized in the framework of the Regional Program for Afghanistan and Neighboring Countries, Sub-Program 3. 

The certified national trainers facilitated sessions helping strengthen child protective factors as well as enabling parents to learn how to build a friendly atmosphere in the family. Up to 60 families, 24 teachers and psychologists attended the training which was organized in three selected schools in Ashgabat.

"Sometimes we forget the little important issues on family wellbeing. FAST has reminded us about them" mentioned one of parents.
