Mpumalanga Community-Based Organisation Governance Training (Archived)
The goal of the project is to consolidate capacity development and service provision of thirteen Community Based Organisations (CBOs) in Mpumalanga Province by: providing support to CBO registration as Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs); build CBO capacity for the sound business management of their organisations; strengthen capacity for service provision for health prevention and promotive strategies specifically relating to the key priority health programmes of HIV/AIDS, Maternal and Child Health; and Nutrition.
Achievements to date:
- All CBOs have been trained in basic aspects of HIV and AIDS, treatment literacy, project management and financial management
- Five of thirteen CBOs have been successfully registered as NPOs, while the rest are in the process of registration. The registration process as a NPO will ensure the sustainability of the CBO as it will then qualify the CBO to apply for funding
- Thirteen Local Project Coordinators were recruited, hired and trained on team leadership, supervision, monitoring, evaluation and reporting
- An organisational development training manual for CBOs has been developed and finalised
HST facilitators are currently running a series of onsite training sessions for CBO leadership teams using participatory training methodologies, as well as on-going mentoring and coaching, to improve the governance and organisational capacity of the CBOs. In addition, peer supporters also conduct training workshops for traditional health practitioners.
