Training and capacity

Training and capacity

Over the years we have developed various training modules with a view to reinforcing the oversight role of key actors within organisations/institutions. We have supported capacity-strengthening initiatives that have benefitted all levels of personnel as well as decision makers, such as ministers, permanent secretaries and parliamentarians. These modules serve as the building blocks to achieving good corporate governance, transparency, accountability and organizational growth. We have experience in Participatory and Partnership approaches, and in Institutional Capacity Building Strategies.
