Monday 14th of June 2021, our local partners at Rinda Ubuzima and the Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) started an exciting series of eight kick-off workshop in southwestern Rwanda to initiate the second round of trainings for community health workers (CHWs) as part of the Health[e]Community Rwanda program.
Agile working and strong collaboration are fundamental values for Health[e]Foundations’ operations. The Health[e]Community Rwanda program has proven once more that these two components make our programs thrive.
Instead of hosting the workshops at a central venue in Kigali, our flexible and dedicated team of local partners decided to go where the CHWs are. In eight days, in eight districts, and with eight workshops a total of 135 CHWs started their e-learning journey.
We are grateful for the financial support of Johnson & Johnsons Global Public Health division and the Welcome Trust and wish all the CHWs the best of luck in completing the Health[e]Community course on Ebola and COVID-19 prevention, life skills, sexual and reproductive health, and other healthy living concepts.
