Training / Capacity Building
Capacity building is defined as the "process of developing and strengthening the skills, instincts,
abilities, processes and resources that organizations and communities need to survive, adapt, and thrive in the fast-changing world”.
Training and Development is the framework for helping employees to develop their personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities. The focus of all aspects of Human Resource Development is on developing the most superior workforce so that the organization and individual employees can accomplish their work goals in service to customers. Training is a process of building capacity of stakeholders based on our objective and their need, which are planned after the discussion with the CBOs, communities, stakeholders. We generally assume that any training that we conduct are on the basis of the need of stakeholders and have specific expectation from the stakeholders, that once they trained, they will perform, they will meet, build the capacity of other people, raise the issues, participate in activities and build a positive environment etc.
Our organization has conducted various types of Capacity Building programs related to the project and to build the capacity of our staffs so that their vision about the objectives of the project would get clear.
