Capacity building vital for organisations

Youth & Careers

CAPACITY-building is important for the progress of any organisation, says a trainer.
The assistant head trainer of the Kairak Vudal Resource Training Centre for integrated agriculture training programme, Doreen Tunama, said capacity building through training improved the knowledge and skills in organisations.
Tunama was speaking this last week following the training of 16 of the centre’s staff in computing.
The trainees would use their newly acquired knowledge and skills to teach rural farmers.
Tunama said the training was facilitated by the University of Natural Resources and Environment’s information and communication technology officer, John Aiwa, and was organised and coordinated by Leo Darius and herself.
“The training is vital to assist these key people to use computers when delivering the integrated agriculture training programme modules and to write and compile reports,” Tunama said.
“This will also minimise costs in printing of teaching aids like posters, handouts and pamphlets.
“After this training, participants will be able to use powerpoint presentations as an effective and efficient mode of transmitting information to farmers. They can use pictures and short videos rather than reading from books.”
The trainees were invited by the Australian Centre for International Agriculture Research on galip nut project at the National Agriculture Research Institute at Kerevat for a two-day film-making training.
The training was about how to produce a short video.
