“Within these ten years I spent, our organization did three important achievements. We trained communities about concept of conflict, capacity building, and we trained women to against poverty. The organization is working hard to aware people about leadership management and things that can bring problem to communities and things that can bring solution to communities,” he said.
He appreciated the participants for turning out in large numbers. In the first training, only about 30 people participated but the number increased to over 100.
