A major aspect of CHF’s work is enabling partner organizations to build their capacity to serve their communities. At the end of April, CHF staff, field staff and representatives of CHF’s partner organizations met outside of Ottawa to discuss how to continue to improve this important capacity building work. The goal of the exercise was to exchange best practices and identify five top areas for improvement.
According to Cindy Farrell, CHF’s Director of Technical Services, “Some of the highlights of the three-day workshop were the quality of the presentations made by our capacity building practitioners from around the world — Guyana, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Ghana — and the opportunity for consultation and exchange between the program staff from headquarters and the field.
“It was truly an opportunity to move this work forward in an important way.”
