International Outreach Trains the Trainer and Builds Capacity in Tanzania

Train the Trainer workshop at National Sugar Institute in TanzaniaSenior Advisor for International Affairs Esther Gottlieb is currently in Tanzania with Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders alumnus Bahati Hakimu Msomba, a regulatory services office at the Sugar Board of Tanzania. They recently led a two-day "Train the Trainer" workshop group at the National Sugar Institute in the Killombero district.

The workshop provided professional development opportunities for 45 trainers and extension officers from all over the region. Participants developed training expertise, were taught how to practice collaborative strategies, learned how to engage youth in agriculture and compared experiences with the use of technology and social media in farming and business.

Gottlieb will be also presenting an interactive workshop at the University of Dodoma that facilitates discussion among participants on how to improve our understanding of how students’ and teachers’ cultural norms influence communication both in formal and non-formal settings.

Gottlieb's workshop is part of on-going capacity building projects that The Ohio State University has been on for the past few years in Tanzania.
