By Thomas Domah/ Nimba County

The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) with funding from the Irish and Swedish Embassies is supporting the national elections commission training in project proposal writing for women-led Civil Society Organizations and organizations of people with disabilities across the country.

The five days training is bringing together participants from all 15 counties, currently ongoing in Ganta, Nimba county.

It is aimed at promoting inclusive participation of disabled people’s organizations and women alongside Civil Society Organizations.

UNDP program officer for elections, Roosevelt Zayzay, said the support is linked to UNDP’s strategic approach to inclusive and participatory elections, as part of its capacity-building programs for electoral stakeholders.

He disclosed that at the end of the exercise, participants will return to their respective counties to share knowledge learned with others.

Participants from the fifteen counties praised UNDP and the Irish and Swedish Embassies for supporting the training aimed at enhancing their knowledge of project proposal writing.

They said the training will help to boost their various organizations that have been challenged in writing effective proposals for projects.

The county coordinator for organizations of people living with disabilities from Maryland county, Joseph Barfeh lauded the foreign partners for giving them the opportunity, which he described as timely. Editing by Jonathan Browne
