The TA Marryshow Community College, School of Continuing Education (SCE) was able to secure funding for a Capacity Development Project for Community Based Organisations through the Global Environmental Fund (GEF) for small grant programmes.
As part of this project, SCE provided proposal writing workshops to members of community-based organisations who have previously submitted projects as part of the development project. This training provided community organisation members with the knowledge and skills, to prepare and submit proposals to the office of the Global Environmental Fund (GEF) that are properly compiled and have an excellent chance of being approved for the grant. The aim was to train at least 40 community-based members throughout the tri-Island State of Grenada.
Three training sessions were planned with Steve Maximay as facilitator: 9 and 15 October from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at the National Stadium and 29 October in Hillsborough, Carriacou.
Following these sessions community groups will submit final proposal documents to the GEF Small Grants Programme for funding under its sixth operational cycle. Grantees are expected to begin implementation by January 2020. These projects will be based on two main thematic focuses which are Community Based Landscape Conservation and Climate Smart Innovative Agro-Ecology.
Another aspect of the Capacity Development Project through the School of Continuing Education is to offer an Associate Degree in Sustainable Community Development which is expected to commence 6 January 2020.
