This training is designed to capture or address three needs in the community:

  1. The need for NVS to strengthen its volunteer placements in villages by providing skills training for the community at large.
  2. The need for community groups to better able to manage their work by using the knowledge and resources they already have within their community.
  3. Identifies the general need for appropriate training for rural communities and urban settlements that promotes self-reliance.

Thus this training is designed to benefit the entire community, including women, elders and youth, different church groups, etc. The Training is most effective in communities that are serious about becoming more self-reliant and whose members are willing to work together to make positive changes in their lives.
