Unless we use a logical approach, we may invest on the effect than the cause

For organizations to provide relief and development services, a proper and accurate realization of needs is mandatory. This can only be achieved through systematic and participatory assessments of the target community and a logical project planning. The LFA is widely used for project planning and implementation.

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