CHRAD organized empowerment workshop

The Cradle of Hope for Relief and Development (CHRAD) seeks to improve the professional well-being of present and future generations in communities where it operates by helping to achieve a humane, equitable, and sustainable balance between people and resources and its effective and judicious utilization.

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) otherwise Non-Profit Organization (NPO) and Community Based Organization (CBOs) are all agents of change that collaborate with donor agencies to implement programs intended to address challenges in deprived communities.

Depending on the NGO focus areas, prioritized grants are directed by donors to address the specific need of the community such as providing clean drinking water, providing classroom blocks, providing teaching and learning aid, etc.

Over the years, donor grants for all these projects earmarked specifically for deprived communities are rapidly reducing because of some challenges such as:

1) Lack of transparency in the utilization of funds received for projects which cause donors to lose trust.

2) Inappropriate and or untimely interventions of projects leading to poor results

3) A poor budgetary allocation of resources and this often leads to suspicion on the part of the donors.

4) Lack of clarity in report writing which denies the organization the opportunity to justify positions.

5) Poor collaboration with the beneficiary community

6) Lack of strategies to mobilize resources to implement programs. Etc

Having identified these challenges that are hindering the progress of NGOs, CBOs in the community, CHRAD in collaboration with Global Giving organized a one (1) day workshop for NHOs and CBOs at the Buduburam Settlement. 46 participants from various organizations attended.

Speeches were made by the Director of CHRAD, Mr. Varney Sambola II who was then the chairman of the Liberian Refugee Welfare Council and the Representative from Global Giving.

Discussions were held as well as questions and answers from the participants to clear doubts.

At the end of the workshop, participants expressed appreciation to CHRAD for the training since it was the first of its kind. They pleaded with the organizers to expand the initiative and were able to uncover an individual’s weakness and addressed the same.
