From 20 to 29 May 2018 was held in Keshero, Goma (DRC), a training session for Development Committees (CD) of the PAC Province. The purpose of this session was to present the booklet “Project Management Guidelines for Missionaries of Africa“. This booklet was designed by the General Council with the help of a group of confreres and two lay specialists to help Development Committees plan, execute and manage income-generating projects.
At this session in Goma, 18 confreres from the PAC representing the 8 Sectors of the Province participated: Kinshasa, Ituri, Burundi, Rwanda, Maniema, Goma, Bukavu and Lubumbashi. The main facilitators were Hilaire Guinko and Anthony Baaladong, with the support of Mr Richard Bock, a Project Management specialist. The first part lasted 5 days during which the participants were able to discover the steps to follow in the design, planning, implementation and management of a revenue-generating project. They also had the opportunity to visit five income generating projects of the Diocese of Goma.
The second part of the 2-day session was moderated by Mr Bugeme, Professor at the Institute of Rural Development (ISDR) of Bukavu and focused on developing projects for presentation to donors.
The next session of this kind will be held in Ouagadougou, from June 24 to July 3 for the Provinces of PAO and Maghreb.
