Girls’ Power Initiative (GPI) Calabar concluded an energetic two-day staff Self- Care and wellness retreat that took place on January 24th-25th, 2024.
The retreat, supported by HIVOS under the WeLead project, aimed to establish a nurturing environment for staff to openly discuss and address the impacts of work-related burnout and mental stress on their well-being.
The sessions enabled participants to share their experiences and also aided in the development of their coping strategies. Additionally, participants were asked to incorporate a Self-Care plan into their daily routine.
Other activities during the retreat included medical health checks especially Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) for men, cervical cancer screening for women, and a Music and Dance Therapy Session.
The combination of team-bonding, along with a blend of enjoyment and nourishment, created a contemplative atmosphere.
These sessions have left us energized and ready for a productive and accomplished year ahead.
