Community Capacity Building on Sickle Cell Disease and Genotype Testing in Tambuwal Local Government Area of Sokoto State
One of our activities in the EU British Council ACT grant is to sensitize community based organisations on Sickle Cell Disorder and Genotype Testing through capacity building.
We built capacity of 100 male and 100 females in Tambuwal local government area of Sokoto State. We appreciate the support of the local government chairman, traditional leaders, religious leaders, the police and the civil defense.
INDUCTION AND ORIENTATION FOR NEW GRANTEES
We participated in the induction ceremony and orientation program for new grantees of the EU ACT program. The event took place in Abuja recently. The training has exposed us to global best practices in terms of CSOs grant management.
Thank you, EU.
Every year, we interact with our new volunteers in an orientation program. This year we had a productive interaction with our volunteers.
The interaction contained presentation on what our organisation does, our aims and objectives and our successes, by Dr Auwal Ahmed Musa, our Executive Director.
The program also featured a presentation about Volunteerism by Mallam Rabiu Bello Ghandi of Save the Child Initiative.
We thank all volunteers for joining us in making our youths productive members of the society.
