NSRLM conducts multi-thematic training for staff
KOHIMA, JULY 1: In line with the strategic objective for developing pool of resource persons from within cutting edge staff, Nagaland State Rural Livelihoods Mission (NSRLM) conducted a three-day multi-thematic training in the RD’s conference hall, Kohima, from June 28-30. The objective of the training was to develop 20-30 State Resource Persons (SRPs) in each of the nine resource blocks to provide capacity building support towards enhancing programme quality of the Mission.
NSRLM believed in developing enough human resource capital to address issues of poverty both within the State as well as outside during the Mission period.
District and Block staff from the 9 NSRLM districts and staff of the State Mission Management Unit underwent intensive classroom lectures and interactive sessions on the thematic topics of social inclusion and social mobilization; gender and convergence, capacity building management, financial inclusion and finance management and livelihoods. The training was conducted by nine NSRLM staff, who had recently undergone ToT at NIRD, Guwahati. As a follow-up, the district/ block level trainings would be organized to achieve the target.
Athel O Lotha, Joint Secretary of RD and Mission Director NSRLM, encouraged the staff for continued ownership of the programme as development professionals and to translate learning to actions at the community level.
M Rollan Lotha, COO (Programs), chaired and facilitated the training sessions. The programme concluded with a field visit to Kigwema village in Kohima district, where Focus Group Discussion (FGD) and Participatory Rural Appraisals (PRA) were conducted along with members of Self Help Groups (SHGs) and Village Level Organization (VLO) from the village. Transect walk, social and resource mapping were also done by trainees.
