Effective Community Governance Taught in Cherkaska Oblast

 Training Effective Organization Management for representatives of Gorodyshchenky rayon was held by EU/UNDP CBA Project.

One of the CBA Project aims is to train CO leaders. To achieve this goal Cherkasy Oblast Implementation Unit launches a series of trainings for CO representatives – the Project participants and local authorities’ representatives.

In March 2009 Project coordinators Natalya Belyukina and Hanna Babkova held seminars-trainings on Effective Organization Management for COs representatives and heads of selected by the Project VCs in all rayon capitals with support of rayon state authorities.

The questions discussed are as follows: How to mobilize the community? How to unite people to solve the problems of the territory they live in? Peculiarities of organization registration and funding activity, successful communication, resource search etc.

Approving opinions of participants prove the seminar interesting and useful: “Like first steps are difficult and frightful for a toddler, but parental guardianship of Project coordinators fills us with strength and inspiration to change our life for the better. And it is necessary to do something for this. That is why despite fear we will start work and believe in success”.
