Our co-ordinator Rieder has just landed back in Kenya after a wonderful 3 weeks here in the UK. We asked him to write a brief update for the website to share his experience and some of his highlights from his trip with you.
"I was happy to see Amy and Rich on my arrival, despite being a long journey. Amy and Rich managed to organise a lot of training for me and that was really important in my work.
I learnt a lot of new things I can use in my job from each training and also met some of the sponsors, which was really good for me to share with them about the kids they sponsor and their families.
I had good times throughout my stay in the UK for those three weeks. I was really pleased to see how people were kind to me. ”
While he was here in the UK we were able to organise the following training courses for Rieder, all with qualified professionals or specialist organisations. All were excellent teachers and all provided fantastic opportunities for him to grow and develop:
Building Resilience with vulnerable families
Adolescent relationships, Contraception and Sexual health
IT - maintenance and troubleshooting
Organisation and Time Management
Group Dynamics and running a successful youth group
Working with vulnerable young people
Education and non-traditional learning styles and techniques
Business mentoring and developing a Business Plan
Play and Interaction with 3-5 year olds
THANK-YOU to all the contributors and everyone who made this training possible for him - it will have a hugely beneficial impact on Milele in the years to come.
“The 10 year's celebration of Milele Program was one of my best memories I will ever keep. It was amazing to see how people supported Milele in every way they can to make it successful.
As I travel back home, I know saying goodbye is always hard, but I am more confident and well equipped with knowledge which will help me transform the loves of our kids and ensure they have a brighter future ahead.
Thanks to everyone for being welcoming towards my visit. I really appreciate everything you have done for me throughout my stay in the UK.
I will always do my best in my job and help all the kids
