Updates - Training
Christian Aid Ministries this year has succeeded in training two of its staff under the Stakeholders Capacity Building trainings at CHEP. Training of staff members is one of the most important aspect in the organization, for it helps the organization grow in the smooth, effective and efficient running of the organizational project programs.
CAM has trained Davison Mwale in governance and financial management. This training aims at training key players in the smooth running of organizations, to ensure effectiveness and efficiency running of the organizations programs. They also learn how to use the funds of the organization in an effective and efficient way. In this regard the Centre manager Davison Mwale was sent by the director Mr. Stanley Mulenga to undergo the 7 day course. The training was a success and the certificate was awarded to Davison Mwale.
On the 20th to 26th CHEP called for another training in project design. For this training course the director Mr. Stanley Mulenga sent Davison Mwale and Cynthia Phiri. It was a one week course and the two staff members have been trained and acquired the knowledge and skills in project design.
New Office Equipment for Program Implementation and Documentation
All along Christian Aid Ministries has been relying on two computers: one desktop and a small laptop. But on the 15th of March, 2014, Mr. Stanley Mulenga purchased 3 desktop computers and one big laptop. The organization now has 5 computers and 2 laptops. These computers have made administrative work easy because each office and department has their own computer for documentations.
It used to be difficult to write report because departments used to share computers and so work used to move at a slow rate. But now with this equipment, work has been made easy and the report and documentations of our work and other administrative works are being implemented as planned. The staff members have thanked our sponsors for the work of Christian aid ministries. God bless you very much and protect you for the wonderful job you are doing.
Nutrition Support Program
On the food or nutrition support program, on the seventh (7th April, 2014) Mr. Stanley Mulenga bought eight 78kg bags of soya beans and were brought at Dr Elizabeth Rini Medical Health Centre. The 8 bags of soya were offloaded and stack in the stores room at Dr Elizabeth Rini Medical Health Centre.
On the 11th of April the community volunteers came to sought out the soya beans by removing those bad soya beans from the good ones in readiness for frying. The people who were doing this work were Christian Aid Ministries staff members and volunteers. The names are Doreen Mwanfulilwa, Fides Mwila, Cathrine Chungu, Mulenga Chongo, Cythia Phiri and Davison Mwale. On the 14th April, 2014 community volunteers and CAM staff started frying soya in readiness for the feeding program.
On the 28th April, Mr. Stanley Mulenga the Director and 2 CAM staff went to the hammer meal for soya grinding and came back around 16:30 hours with soya meal for the nutrition support to TB and HIV/AIDS clients at the Centre.
