Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

Promoting, developping, program designing and implementation were equally balanced between the international team of 3 trainers. As the hosting trainer, I was also responsible for finding the training venue, contacting with local organisations, budgeting, hiring logistic support and organising time in the town.

I worked on this training for 6 days as a full time trainer.
