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.


TRRR visit Buduburam

A visit by TRRR delegates to the Buduburam Refugee Camp 40 kilometers from Accra was planned as part of our 2013 TRRR conference in Ghana.

With the official closing of the camp by UNHCR a year ago and the repatriation back to Liberia of most of the tens of thousands of Liberians who once resided in the camp, the services available to the approximately ten thousand Liberian refugees that have remained in the camp have been greatly reduced.

UNESCO donate to the Buduburam Refugee Community

UNESCO works to create the conditions for dialogue among civilizations, cultures, and peoples, based upon respect for commonly shared values. It is through this dialogue that the world can achieve global visions of sustainable development encompassing observance of human rights, mutual respect and the alleviation of poverty, all of which are at the heart of UNESCO’S mission and activities.
The broad goals and concrete objectives of the international community – as set out in the internationally agreed development goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – underpin all UNESCO’s strategies and activities. Thus UNESCO’s unique competencies in education, the sciences, culture and communication and information contribute towards the realization of those goals.
UNESCO’s mission is to contribute to the building of peace, the eradication of poverty, sustainable development, and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture, communication, and information. The Organization focuses, in particular, on two global priorities:
Africa
Gender equality
And on many overarching objectives:
Attaining quality education for all and lifelong learning
Mobilizing science knowledge and policy for sustainable development
Addressing emerging social and ethical challenges
Fostering cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and a culture of peace
Building inclusive knowledge societies through information and communication

“Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed.”
