On 28 February and 1 March 2023, ten new coaches working for DOT Ethiopia and the WIDU Ethiopia team met for a training of coaches and to kick-off a successful partnership. The workshop’s objective was to introduce the WIDU project to the new coaches. Furthermore, WIDU and the ten new coaches discussed expectations for their training sessions as well as topics such as receipt eligibility and learned about how to use the WIDU platform as coaches and coaching coordinator. 

On the second day of the training the group was joint by RFC. RFC is WIDU Ethiopia’s second coaching organization. They shared their experiences, views, and opinions while working with WIDU for a year. Nuriya Tenkir, who works for WIDU Ethiopia is satisfied with the outcome of the exchange between RFC and DOT: “It was also a great opportunity for DOT Ethiopia to see how the WIDU Coaching actually works on the ground and share experiences.”

These coaching sessions are tailored to the needs of the individuals, but WIDU also sets certain topics to be able to offer a standardized training for all.
