Training and capacity building programmes aims
at building skills in NGOs to include communication into their
activities in a planned and systematic manner. A training calendar
offers a modular series which builds skills for basic and advanced
levels of communication needs in NGOs.
The approach of the training programmes is presented in a modular
learning curve wherein through a step-by-step building block approach
the participants learn the 'how-to' of communication. For instance,
in a training on 'Working with Newspapers', the participants observe
a 'live' press conference. This is followed by a mock-up press
conference where the group simulates a press conference in order
to undergo an experiential learning process.
This approach is used for all training activities wherein the
premise of learning 'how to' is applied to all training activities.
