Selected Staff of NABOCADO have been through a five-day capacity building workshop on Emergency Response Preparedness.

The training which forms part of the Empowering Partner Organizations Working in Emergency Response, EMPOWER project funded by CRS EMPOWER West Africa Regional Office (WARO), aims to build staff and the NABOCADO’s capacity in planning and execution of emergency activities.

Staff are also leveraging the knowledge gained from the training in developing standard operating procedures (SOPs) and guidelines on emergency response which will help NABOCADO improve its Coordination, Communication, MEAL, among other critical areas.

Making a statement to open the session on Monday, 24th June 2024 in Bolgatanga, the Human Development Coordinator of NABOCADO, Dr Joseph Ayembilla urged staff to participate effectively and attentively in all activities of the training.

He said “ This is another important and critical training we are getting from the EMPOWER project. I am very pleased with trainings that CRS have facilitated and I believe it will go a long way to ensure we do our work in emergencies situations with appropriate care and professionalism.”

The workshop is being facilitated by Madgestan Ngueadoum, Advisor on Programme Quality at CRS West Africa Regional Office, WARO and supported by Akanpabadai Timothy Amang-bey, CRS-GHANA head of Ofice, Tamale.
