(place the normal methods we are applying)
Financial Management is a dry subject. It will be quite boring if the trainer goes slide by slide and continue with explanation. Rokyan’s training team designed the conduction in a way so that the participants from really beginning till end of the training do not feel bored or exhausted. All learning was turned and explained through playing games, presenting problems and case studies. Real problems discussion added another higher value to the training which participants appreciated a lot.
Dinner in Ramkhamhaeng Soi 124:
This is the place where open buffet of raw meat is offered and every individual shall fry it for himself/herself.
Dinner in Arab Street:
For Afghans, the most difficult thing is to accommodate with local foods and it was once again proved in this visit that there is no change. Afghans, everywhere, looking for Afghan foods. Therefore, we organized second honrary dinner in an Arab restaurant which is offering halal cuisine with delicious tastes.
Besides collecting daily written feedback of the team, training crew was asking informally the feedback. Rokyan focuses a lot on feedback so that they can explore the hidden stories behind the bars and design the next day of the training much more better, knowledgeable and effective.
Extra Efforts by Rokyan:
Rokyan is always adding value to training tours and exposures by adding extra efforts. They considered the extra efforts for this training too without making short.
a. Thailand Visa:
Thailand visa is one of the complicated milestones to be secured. It takes 45 days and shall be processed by Ministry of Foreign Affairs Thailand. In the second stage, passports of all individuals have to be taken to Islamabad, Pakistan to collect the sticker from the embassy.
b. Facilitator’s travel with the team:
Whenever Rokyan is conducting a training abroad, a local facilitator who is responsible for logistics and support, travels with the team. Some times it comes as first experience of the participants travelling abroad or visiting a new country, therefore, local facilitator who has got international experience and is well aware of diverse culture is travelling for the comfort and better facilitation of the teams.
