RESET is a project of Resources Oriented Development Initiatives (RODI) which engages retirees, and those due to retire, to continue being a resource to society in their retirement. It also walks with them to turn retirement into a profitable and enjoyable venture. RESET views retirement as a relay for inter-generational transfer of the baton of knowledge and wisdom gained over many years of service. It is a multi-faceted and holistic approach to bridging the gap between the fast-paced active working life and retirement. Most retirees are highly skilled, experienced and resourceful up to retirement but left to end at that point, society misses out on this vast resource. This realization necessitated the formation of RESET to create opportunities for retirees to channel this vast resource of skills and knowledge to productive use for the benefit of society and thereby reset their lives for another productive yet peaceful, healthful and happy phase of life.
RESET therefore endeavors to positively impact beneficiaries in various thematic areas including:
Food, nutrition and income security
Psychosocial support and healthful living
Agro-processing, value addition and manufacture of various consumer products
Inspired and empowered retirees living a healthy, financially stable and socially fruitful life.
To positively impact on the lives of Kenyans before and after retirement, through various initiatives.
