To teach and en-skill participants to:
plan and write effective grant proposals;
present with impact;
be a better leader;
understand oneself and others better; and
effectively monitor and evaluate projects.
Other objectives included offering participants a broad spectrum of experiences and learning, such as community living in an international setting, building relationships, understanding and appreciating different cultures, and witnessing Good Shepherd partnership in action.
The programme culminated with each participant giving a presentation on a project they plan to carry out in their country and the support needed. It was a source of joy and gratitude that some projects found sponsors following the presentations.
Through the programme, participants acquired both hard and soft skills necessary to be more effective in mission.
