Project Cycle Management - logframe training 16, 17 & 18th April 2007






Together with Mr. Gerard Verbeek from Synergo Consult I conducted on the 16th, 17th and 18th April 2007 a Project Cycle Management - Logical Framework training for Red een Kind (Help a Child). This organisation focusses on empowering Children at Risk in development countries. Help a Child is active in Eastern Africa and in a number of countries in Asia.
During the training 10 staff gained skills in planning, monitoring & evaluation, and made a plan of action on how to integrate the programmatic approach in their Child Sponsoring Program.

Training Facilitation Methods - 11th April 2007






Last week I trained three advisors from ICCO in facilitation methods. The advisors will play a major role in improving external communication of Non Governmental Organisations in Bolivia, Ethiopia and Honduras. One of the local organisations focuses on mainstreaming Aids/ HIV issues with their development partners in Ethiopia, while the other two organisations stress the right of indigenous people and farmers. Hereby some photo impressions of the training.
