WORKSHOP: Life skills for a meaningful retirement
The workshop underway at the Mbezi Garden Hotel, Dar es Salaam.

Over the past three days, the Ifakara Health Institute has been diligently focused on improving the skills and well-being of its staff who are nearing retirement. In this endeavor, they have joined forces with Epvate & Fortune International Consulting to host a workshop titled "Life Skills, Entrepreneurship & Creating a Roadmap for a Meaningful Retirement".

The primary goal of this training as described by IHI’s Human Resource Unit is to introduce IHI staff to the fundamentals of effective life skills, entrepreneurship, health management, money management (personal finance, personal budgeting, and investment), and business management. The benefits of this training are not only limited to the workplace but extend to all retirees looking to achieve their post-retirement goals.

The training had a variety of teaching methods, including short lectures, case study examples, practical templates, presentations, discussions, and even games. The goal was to create a dynamic learning environment where participants can actively engage with the material.

Hery Aidan, Human Resource Officer commented that this training not only benefits the individual but also contributes to the overall success of the Institute by having a well-prepared and motivated workforce.
