Training course on “Enhanced Capacity in Leadership for Community-Based Organizations”

Nowadays, community-based organizations (CBOs) in Vietnam need to be equipped with knowledge plus skills and must reduce maximum dependence on resources from aid projects to be able to maintain and sustainably grow their organizations. When international resources gradually reduce, this capacity will help CBOs to demonstrate their ability to participate as a successful partner in HIV prevention programs. Perceiving that leadership is one of the necessary skills for sustainable development, the CCRD organized a training course “Enhanced Capacity in Leadership for Community- based Organizations” in the context of the Enhanced Community HIV Link – Northern” project which was funded by USAID in April, 2017.

The training course attracted participation of 11 CBOs’ leaders and core members in Hanoi and Nghe An. Over 3 days of training, the leaders of CBOs honed their leadership skills, improved critical and analytical thinking ability as well as equipped themselves with knowledge about specific fields in managing an organization such as human resource management and finance/accounting.
