Staff Capacity Building workshop for effective implementation of development projects

Date: Jan 14, 2019 | Head office-Kampala, Uganda

  1. Rationale: Young-adult Empowerment Initiative (YEi) in partnership with other development agencies intends to achieve certain development objectives. This involves making informed decisions regarding the available resources. However, the supporting staff may not have the necessary skill sets and knowledge in project planning and management, M&E which is an important tool for optimizing the use of the limited resources by assuring efficient and effective implementation of development activities and enabling staff and other decision makers to draw lessons for the future. It’s also essential that staff become more independent and self-reliant in writing project proposals and approaching potential donors and financiers. The workshop is therefore intended to address these and related challenges.
  2. . Objectives:
    • To improve staff skill sets in systematic identification, preparation, appraisal, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development projects. To identify and formulate critical performance indicators. To design a M&E system and produce M&E reports. To write a fund-able project proposals and to mobilize resources for the proposals.
  3. Topics discussed: Project Proposal writing and Resource Mobilization, Project Planning and Management & Project Monitoring and Evaluation

The staff capacity building training organized by the Young-adult Empowerment Initiative was conducted Jan 11 to 12, 2019 and attended by 10 staff members. The three (3) facilitators are qualified and have many years experience in the field of humanitarian development. Our staff benefited from their practical experiences and tools they provided which we shall in turn use to strengthen our organization in the humanitarian service and development.

YEi shall continue to conduct periodic staff capacity building sessions in order to completely bridge identified gaps and strengthen overall grant implementing capacity.
