District Mayor distributes certificate to workshop participants.
On January 5, the Mohammad Agha acting district governor and district mayor participated in the closing ceremony of a leadership and management training for thirty district government members, supported by USAID’s Local Governance and Community Development (LGCD) Project. The event marked the trainees’ successful completion of one-week workshops in management and leadership, covering finance, human resources, and project management, as well as conflict resolution, leadership, procurement, communications, and information technology. The training follows a stabilization survey conducted by USAID’s LGCD in Mohammad Agha last year, in which residents expressed little faith in the government’s ability to provide services. This training will build the capacity of these government officials to be able to respond citizens’ needs more efficiently and proactively in the future.
