August 19 2004

A Training Course on Administering Non-governmental Organizations and How to Finance them started last Sunday. It was organized by the National Cultural Center for the Youth, in Taiz, and will last from August 15th-30th 2004. The course is supported by Fredrisch Ebert Stiftung, a German organization in collaboration with the Arab Institute for Human Rights in Tunis, and is participated in by 30 trainees representing non-governmental organizations and unions leaderships within the Taiz Governorate. It aims at familiarizing them with how to administer organizations, project preparation, and how to get finance. The courses assessment and follow-up will be done by an Arab Instructor from Tunis, in addition to Yemeni trainers, Showki Abdul Raqeeb al-Qadhi and Ms. Misk al-Gunaid. Mr. Abdullah Abdul Elah Sallam, head of the Youth Center said, “one of the main reasons to organize such a course is the weakness from which these organizations suffer, in financing their activities and contacting international organizations operating in Yemen. The course aims at training on the same lines.” He added, “The course will create a competitive spirit amongst the organizations, so as to work in light of the fact, and form up partnerships among them. It is worth mentioning that a forum will take place with international organizations operating in Yemen to create future partnerships among the NGOs and these organizations”, he said.
