INSTITUTIONAL FEEDBACK TRAINING ENHANCES DISABLED PEOPLE ORGANISATION’S ADVOCACY SKILLS

The essence of the institutional feedback meeting was to improve the knowledge of DPOs members advocacy, communication, and management skills and to effectively carry out their organisational activities as well as affect policy making processes in line with the UNCRPD and in support of persons living with disabilities in Liberia.

In January, 2019 a total of 10 DPOs across Bong, Nimba, Grand Gedeh and Monsterrado counties conducted three days feedback meetings. An abridged training manual containing 11 lessons was summarised and distributed to the 10 DPOs ahead of the meetings with their members. Training were facilitated by representatives of DPOs that attended the first institutional training that was held in Ganta.

Topics were focused on the UNCRPD, the Liberia National Action Plan on Disability(NAP-D), Advocacy and Communication strategies, Networking at local and nat’l level, legislation on Disability in Liberia among others. At the end of the meetings, the DPOs concluded with the setting up of committees to regularly engage local actors on matter relating to persons with disabilities. Committee is also tasked with responsibility of creating awareness in schools and other community gathering.
