My name is Najm ud Din son of Sahib Khan and I am currently workingas a DDA member of Sayed Abad district of Maydan Wardak.
I was selected for this training by Sayed Abad DDA members and attended in this training for 10 days starting from 10th April 2012.In the beginning of the training, when trainers told us that, first we want to evaluate trainee’s level of understating and then we will go ahead to next step, I was tooworried about this because I did not know anything about project management and they will evaluate me, but the trainers told us that, it’s just evaluation that according to the result of the test we will provide project management training to you.
After that, I felt myself free, but indeed each question in first was too difficult for me and I was not able to answers the entire questionnaire.
However, the master trainers started training slowly and steadily and according to our level of understanding.We went through the course and during the training, different types of course materials, like agenda of the training, presentation documents, notes, notebooks, pens, proposal writing book, and flipcharts were distributed among the participants in order to take benefit from it. These materials were very beneficial for us and we also used it in a proper way.
In each day’s training session, we had group workactivities and we presented our work done in the session, the master trainers provided necessary technical assistance and removed our mistakes that we performed in group work activities. We also shared our ideas with trainers and they shared their ideas and views with us and such a good friendly environment was made among the trainer and trainees.
Themaster trainers divided all participants of the training in 3 groups for the purpose of practical work, each group consisted of 6 members and they worked on different project proposals in the session.
After proposal writing, master trainers checked and provided their comments on our written proposal and instructed us not to repeat the mistakes.
However, as a member of Sayed Abad DDA and beneficiary of this training, I would like to say that this was very important training for us, and I am grateful from our honorable trainers and grateful to AABRAR team and the respected donor agency for providing such kind of capacity building programs to the DDA members from Sayed Abad.
Finally, I would like to request from international donor agencies to provide more capacity building programs for DDA members, youth and district government of Sayed Abad.
