Testimonial :

I participated In the CIPT training with Ritaj and I found the training to be comprehensive and detailed, It was directed at my level as an experienced trainer. The trainer, Nisreen, was excellent and could answer all questions asked and delivered the course in an interesting format. I do appreciate the amount of details covered and I feel more confident on how I can apply everything to real life situations and my job. The course coordination was very flexible and I felt like it was a partnership relation rather than a client – service provider relation. I am looking forward for more capacity building investment opportunities with RITAJ, either for myself or for my colleagues in Right To Play organization.
