This project is funded by Bread for the World (BFDW) is the development organisation of Protestant church in Germany). It is a continuation of the Capacity Building of Municipalities for Independent Community Development Project that was carried out in Cawa and Nairai districts from 2016- 2019.
What we want: The three- year project aims to assist the communities in the districts of Vanuaso and Navukailagi (Gau Island) in the formulation and endorsement of their community development plans and eventually realising these plans.
1) Communities in the district of Vanuaso and Navukailagi get support for implementing their Community Action Plan from relevant authorities.
2) Communities in the district of Nairai and Cawa apply the skill set needed to define their development requirement.
What we intend to do: We will partner with relevant stakeholders and government departments, resource personnels that will help in best practices of the project, sharing of information and consultation. Capacity building trainings for the communities include; good governance; organisational management strengthening; community development planning; proposal writing and learning exchanges.
