This is what we are trying to change at Potentiam Youth Centre: each student has unique talents and capabilities and not everyone is able to blossom in the theoretic and uniform education system in Uganda. At Potentiam, we highly award creativity, teamwork, communication skills and the uniqueness of each person.
On May 31st, the Fontes team had a staff capacity-building with the field staff from their water and education projects in Southwestern Uganda. The emphasis was on accountability issues like handing in valuable receipts or respecting the deadlines for the hand-in of accountability documents. All of this has been explained to them in a detailed and understandable way, which was very appreciated by the field staff.
The purpose of the capacity-building was to make the communication between the Fontes head office in Kampala and the field staff in the Katunguru area more smoothly. The increased capacities will make the work of both the field and the head office staff easier and more efficient in the future.
