Development Minister: Training Civil Organizations to Design Projects

Fatima Al Balushi

Between the 25th and 27th April 2009, the National Centre for Supporting Civil Organizations organized a workshop entitled ‘Designing Development Projects’. The Centre aims to help civil organizations design projects which achieve the objectives and priorities of development in Bahrain. It also provides them with training in order that they obtain a financial grant from the Civil Action Fund, financed by the Ministry of Social Development and a number of private sector institutions. The Minister of Social Development, Ms. Fatima Al Balushi, has called upon civil organizations to participate in the financial grants programme for NGOs for the year 2009-2010, in order to put in place developmental social programs that have a positive impact on society.
