NGO trains Youth On Resource Mobilisation, Financial Management 


Jos, – The Justice Development and Peace Commission (JDPC), of the Catholic Archdiocese of Jos has organised, a training on Resource Mobilisation and Financial Management for selected youths in Plateau.

Declaring the workshop open in Jos, Rev. Fr. Basil Kassam, the Project Manager of the organisation known as “Pluralism Actors”, said the training was part of its project, Incubators of Pluralism Actors in Nigeria.

Kassam said that the project, supported by Observatoire Pharos, a French organisation, is being implemented in 12 communities of six local government areas (LGAs) of Plateau and Bauchi states.

He added that Observatoire Pharos was currently supporting similar projects in Niger Republic, Burkina Faso and Mali.

He explained the project would target largely young people, between ages 18 and 30 years, with the aim of de-escalating conflicts in the communities

“This project is to provide tangible support towards building peaceful coexistence in communities affected by conflicts.

“The project will have a deeper look at aspects of religious and cultural dimensions of conflicts to intensify social cohesion.

“It is designed to provide solutions to the religious and cultural conflicts that we are currently going through.

“So, this training is part of preparation towards the proper implementation of the projects in communities,” he said.

Kassam explained that the participants were drawn from the 20 organisations that formed a network collectively implementing the project in benefitting communities.

The project manager added that at the end of the three-day training, participants would understand the concept of resource mobilisation and financial management, and its application in designing and developing project proposals for promoting pluralism.

He said the training would equip and expand the knowledge and skills of participants on financial management by Civil Society Organisations (CSOs).

“This training will help participants understand the organisational readiness to access grants, strengthen internal financial culture of organisations, and improve on financial management skills and system of CSOs,” he said.

Kassam advised participants to be attentive, and cascade the knowledge gained to others in their organisations, for effective and proper implementation of the project. (NAN)
