A recipient of one of the new wheelchairs.
We are thrilled to share that the DCC recently received 35 wheelchairs along with associated staff training, through an initiative jointly delivered by Motivation Africa and Hands Around the World.
Charles Kanyi and Samson Ndeti from Motivation visited on 1st August to train the DCC staff on assembling and fitting the devices for recipients according to WHO policy. The training was very thorough and took the whole week and went well. It was then left to the DCC staff to issue the remaining wheelchairs to identified recipients, fitting them as per the training. A further five wheelchairs are pending delivery as part of the initiative and will be allocated as appropriate once received.
Also in early August, following the appointment of new DCC Board Members, a Board of Management training was conducted, supported by HATW, with ten Board Members trained.
The training first familiarised the participants with core aspects of the DCC, including the DCC’s constitution, vision, mission, policy guidelines and strategic plan. The training proceeded to cover diverse topics including roles of the Board, good governance, leading change, strategic planning, the ten commandments of leadership and finally why projects fail. The training also engaged the participants to identify financial priorities as well as introducing the Board Members to various technical tools in planning. The topics were very well presented and the training well received.
