Transition and Adaptation - For Dependants

You have moved to Kenya with your partner, for his or her job. You have left behind your family, your friends, your job and all that was familiar to you. You feel like you are losing your identity, and sometimes your mind. From a competent, functioning person, you have changed into someone who doesn't know where to buy grapes or how on earth to find a good plumber.

You are excited about exploring new opportunities. You finally will have time for a career switch, for new hobbies, for learning Kiswahili or making new friends. You are looking forward to be challenged and to set new goals.

If the above resonates with you, this course is for you!

InterAct has developed this course specifically for 'dependants' moving with their partner to Kenya. Knowing that the success of an international transition often depends on the happiness of the whole family, we want to help you settling in quickly and find fulfillment in your stay here in Kenya. Whereas the working partner is busy settling into his/her new job, the 'dependant' has to find his/her way around the city and has a new role in managing a household and staff. In this course, we will help you to ask yourself the right questions, to set the goals, and provide you with strategies for coping, besides providing you with practical information.

Course content

This course includes the following topics:

  • Identity, talents and goal-setting
  • Career opportunities, self development, social networks
  • Managing the household and new roles: maids, money, and maintenance issues.
  • Strategies for coping and making the most of your experience
  • Practical information on living in Kenya (in cooperation with Expat-to-Expat)
