Basic Counseling Skills Training Consultancy

RCK together with its partner the GIZ-CPS Programme are looking for consultancy services to conduct a Basic Counseling Skills Training for community leaders in Nakuru County. The training seeks to empower community leaders on offering basic counseling support within their communities and enhance their psychological wellbeing which will then lead to a more resilient community. This will then improve the ability to identify and resolve conflicts peacefully within a community which will lead to peaceful coexistence amongst displaced and host populations.
