Skilled and well qualified: empowering our partners in Nigeria
Nigeria's social structures are in a state of constant transformation: globalisation and urbanisation are casting doubt on the validity of traditional values and social systems. One factor that is driving this transformation ahead – and impacting it negatively – is the conflict between the Nigerian government and the Boko Haram terrorist militia in north-eastern Nigeria. In this situation, practical everyday support is provided through the work of Mission 21's partner church, the Church of the Brethren, Nigeria (EYN). The EYN is one of the decisive civilian players in north-eastern Nigeria. Mission 21 helps the church to provide basic and advanced training for its staff. Employees of the both the other regional partner organisations also receive targeted training as part of this project.
• Comprehensive training courses on project management and financial administration, IT and Good Governance
• Workshops to plan and implement further aid projects, including projects for emercency relief and rehabilitation
• Developing strategies to increase the capacities of local employees: for example, a mentoring system has been introduced so that employees can independently share what they have learned with each other on a cross-departmental basis.
• Workshops on fighting corruption and good business management
