Challenges during COVID times

  • not able to have time with journalists to be able to train beneficiaries because of competing events
  • Hard to have the attention of participants because they are generally doing something else
  • Overwhelming requests of assistances

Overcoming challenges

  • Asynchronous learning experience through either chats or coaching sessions
