NIA CHARLESTOWN (April 18, 2016) — Recipients of a three-day training workshop offered by the Small Enterprise Development Unit (SEDU) from the Caribbean Development Bank through the Caribbean Technology Consultancy Services (CTCS) network now have a better understanding of project writing, implementation and monitoring.
The training, conducted under the theme “Management for Development Results for Business Support Organizations” took place at the St. Paul’s Anglican Church Hall and ended on April 14, 2016.
During the closing ceremony, co-facilitator of the workshop Nicole Liburd said the participants were divided into three groups. Each one was assigned a concept for which they were expected to develop viable projects using the techniques they had learnt during the training sessions.
The concepts were to construct a dual purpose community and health centre in the community of Jessups, to construct new facilities including refrigeration, storage, changing rooms, bathrooms and selling areas for fisher folk of Newcastle and to construct a new tourism visitor centre at Market Shop in Gingerland. The three groups of participants presented their projects at the end of the training.
