A word from the LIT Trainers

Sara Mohyeldeen

IPSF Trainer

LIT is one of the most important capacity building programs in IPSF, and its such an honor for me to be given a chance to deliver informative sessions and developing skills to our current and future leaders.

Bidian Okoth

IPSF Trainer

The transforming opportunity to learn about advocacy skills and how to apply them as a leader in day to day life. This year’s LIT will provide a life changing experience with an opportunity to have fun and cross-learn from great leaders across Africa.

Kennedy Odokonyero

IPSF Trainer

I am excited for this opportunity by IPSF Training Committee to be your trainer. I hope to contribute to the development of pharmacy leaders within Africa, i also hope to acquire more experience in delivering trainings and become a better trainer. LIT is important to address the gap in leadership skills of pharmacy students that are involved in leadership in their associations and IPSF. LIT can improve on quality of projects and activities carried out by IPSF and its member organisations and eventually advance pharmacy globally.

Dr. David Odhiambo

Co-founder, Ryculture Health and Social Innovation

LITs have been instrumental in the development of leadership skills and interpersonal skills which are critical in team work and service delivery. Having participated in a number of LITs both as a trainee and a trainer, I wouldn't take a second chance at being part of an upcoming one. Networks i built through LIT have propelled me to the level that I currently am professionally, i.e, sound health advocacy skills, program development and teamwork which supports my work in different capacities. Congratulations to the 8th IPSF AfPS Reception Committee chaired by Ms. Mercy Kamya and the Regional Projects Office for the perfect topics selection for the forthcoming LIT and overall structure of the LIT. I will be coming as a trainer but in the meantime I am set to learn from the participants. Thumbs up to the #PowerTeam behind the 8th IPSF AfPS.

Lillian Muthoni

IPSF Trainer

The Leaders In Training is all about equipping the participants with soft skills at a personal level that are essential in conquering the world today. Topics to be trained range from collaborative leaders to project management which are ket in successful leadership as well as in daily undertakings. Participants will also be involved in capacity building activities allowing them to network and come out of the program a closely knit pharmily. The LIT is surely the most intimate event of the symposium that guarantees personal growth and creation of new bonds with like minded persons.
