As part of the "Rural Electrification and Empowerment of Women" (ERAF) project funded by Japan, and the joint implementation of this project by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Ministry of Public Works, 79 women and 41 men from 30 Basic Community Organizations (OCB) in the Northeast, of communes of Capotille, Mont-Organisé and Vallières received this week their certificates of participation in a training program in conflict management, communication and accountability, budget management and community project management.
