Any social group will need some leadership support and mentoring to reach a maturity level

Social development in any setting will include working with groups of people from communities. This can be for any purpose, but the approach will require the community to organize themselves as a body. The process of helping communities to reach a consensus and establish a forum to full operationalization of the forum is very critical.

We come up with this course to address the “research-based” needs of development workers and managers. This comprehensive training workshop will ensure the participants gain a change in their performance and not only some useful information.
