The Pro-Poor Growth for Peace Consolidation programme (GPC) at the National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA) has started a five day (14-18 March, 2017) training of trainers programme for NaCSA field staff and technical personnel of Kono, Kailahun and Koinadugu district councils at the MIB Entertainment Complex, Mamma conference Hall in Bo city.


Supported by the German Development Bank (KfW) Programme, the five day training of trainers’ workshop is aimed at assisting the district technical services organize training sessions on the management of NaCSA sponsored income generating facilities at the community level where these facilities are built.


The Deputy Commissioner NaCSA, Haja Isatu Kamara in her opening remark expressed thanks and appreciation to the organizers of the training of trainers’ workshop underscoring the significance of the training in enhancing pillar eight of the Agenda for Prosperity (A4P).


The Deputy Commissioner00 gave a brief overview on the support NaCSA has been providing under the GPC programme in the three districts including infrastructure such as Water wells, Grain stores, drying floors, feeder roads among others. She attributed the major setbacks in managing these facilities to lack of capacity in the various localities to operate, maintain and manage the facilities. These facilities she opined should be well managed and maintained through collective responsibility. It is my expectation that this five day training of trainers will boost your capacity in translating the contents of the training manual into knowledge that will influence attitudes and behaviours of the Facility Management Committees (FMCs), communities and other stakeholders as they will in turn transform the provisions of the guidelines into reality, she added. Haja Isatu Kamara in conclusion thanked their donor the German Development Bank (KfW) in supporting Pillar Eight of the A4P and ECO-GITEC for their expertise in facilitating and implementing the training in capacity building regarding FMCs and District Councils. She called on participants to put into action lessons learnt from this training.


Giving an overview of the five day training of trainers, the ECO-GITEC Consultant, Dr. Pascal de Campos reminded participants that the TOT builds on the MOU reached and signed in November 2016 which stipulated development guidelines on how each facility is operated, maintained, managed and governed and to design templates for management tools utilized by FMCs to operate, maintain and manage facilities. The TOT workshop he furthered will help participants to consolidate tools and harmonise their designation, develop specific contents of FMC training among other issues.


At the end of the five day training Dr. de Campos maintained, participants will be in readiness to conduct FMC training for each income generating facility (IGF) or component, develop training approach for each facility, component and FMC and develop proto-training manuals that will enhance basic hygiene practice, etc.  The participants are expected to train FMCs and their Board members, support FMCs and Board Members with the job coaching or mentoring, organize oversight supervision and control that will underscore what is acceptable behaviour and what is not. The five day training attracted participants from NaCSA, District finance and audit officers, district water and sanitation officers, district agriculture officers from Kono, Kailahun and Koinadugu.
