I have a partial scholarship with the Trade policy training centre and would like to attend the different course modules as and when an offer is available. The content of the course module have development related aspects that target our beneficiaries and am optimistic that if I attend and acquire this knowledge, I should be able to share it and the knowledge will also help in day today running of our organisation activities.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
A partial scholarship worth $6000 as been granted to our Executive Director for 66 days on International Trade and Development. The Executive Director is willing to make the time and attend the training but the condition is that he meets his own transport costs, medical insurance and living costs while for training. The training is beneficial in that there is a development aspect on how the poor can harness local production and be able to participate in trade so as to improve their well being.
How will this project solve this problem?
The project will help the Executive Director meet what is expected of him as his contribution to complete the Scholarship.
Potential Long Term Impact
The long term effect is that world class training will be acquired and once put in good use and well shared, the organisation leadership will be able to design development programs that are relevant to the realities of our beneficiaries. The Executive Director should also be able to network and acquire more skills necessary in today's fast developing world.
