Funding objective

To establish and provide a skills training program to 80 people in four construction-related fields (Assistant Welding / Electrician, Scaffolding, Bar-bending/ Steel fixtures and Masonry). The CD project is targeted to run from July to November 2016.

Why we fund this project

The CD Project aims to make a green investment of FMO more inclusive by providing knowledge and skill building to the local community. As local skilled workers are largely unavailable, the CD Project aims to train unskilled people form the local community, thereby building the local pool of skilled resources for the Lower Solu Project and at the same time providing the skills to the local community that can serve them in the longer term.
