Alfalit Liberia's Coordinators, Center Managers get Capacity Building
12 literacy coordinators and skills training managers of Alfalit Liberia have been trained in project management and reporting ahead of the official start of the 2019 literacy circle.
The training according to Alfalit’s Liberia’s program monitor, Marie Morris was aimed at building the capacity of the coordinators and centers manager, with the sole purpose of enhancing better performance and making the program more effective to meet the organization’s overall goals and the donor’s standard.
The lead facilitator of the two day training, Mr. George Stewart gave the participants hands-on practical skills in management planning, management process, work plans preparation and report writing in order to close the existing gaps in the Liberia’s program.
Over the years, there have been some gaps in the reporting and management process by the coordinators and centers managers; which according to Madam Morris necessitated the training in order to get on par with the other Alfalit Literacy countries around the world.
“We have been doing this job over and over and we got to know that when it comes to managing the program and reporting, we are not on path with some organizations”
“We cannot continue doing business as usual, and given the goals we have set for this 2019 to get to excellence, and increasing the number of literacy beneficiaries from three thousand to four thousand, means there is a need for capacity training”. Madam Morris concluded as saying.
The training benefited eight coordinators from the five literacy operating counties, Montserrado, Grand Bass, Bong, Bomi and Margibi counties including the 3 jobs skills managers from the 72nd, Unification Town and the Old Road Centers, as well as staff from the literacy and training department.
With the completion of the training, coordinators and centers managers will now improve in their reporting, retention of the students in the programs and properly manage the project so that it makes the needed impacts.
