The program are tailor made to suit the need of each NGO and its operating environment to help the NGO leaders and project managers effectively implement, in their projects, the templates that are used during the workshop.  This one-day workshop is designed with very minimal concepts presentation and uses the case study-based simulation technique to explain and apply the concepts in a collective team exercise.

Participants should come with an open mind looking forward to amending their ways and adapting to the changes and use the appropriate techniques during the workshop and explore share and learn.  

While impacting the session in the classroom environment consumes full day (i.e. 9AM to 6PM) of activities for a well-defined activities, and we would like all participants to be present for the complete duration of the workshop. Since the sessions are very interactive participants are expected to avoid coming late and skipping portions as they might lose the opportunity to learn from group discussions and live questions and query resolution session.
