What did Twende need?

Valerie helped Twende improve transparency and accountability with clarified rights, policies, and other expectations in a new or revised employee handbook.

Why is this project important?

Our goal at Twende is to build the capacity of our staff and volunteers. A huge part of that is ensuring our Employee Handbook is organized, easy-to-understand, and comprehensive. We want our Employee Handbook to be a tool of empowerment for our team, so they feel completely comfortable with what they can expect from Twende and what Twende expects from them. Having a clear Employee Handbook will allow our team to focus on the work and not on policies.

This project will save us $2,430, allowing us to run more hands-on creativity trainings with government secondary school students who normally do not have the opportunity to express their creativity in the rigid curriculum.
