About this grant

The Sustainability Institute is a training and learning center, focusing on facilitating the sustainability of community development projects. Mott provided support to design and pilot a training program targeting staff and leaders of community-based organizations. The program uses a combination of face-to-face, distance learning, and online methods and is aimed at building the knowledge and skills of community-based development workers involved in local development and poverty eradication. This grant will continue to provide support to the Sustainability Institute to work with a number of partners in the country to offer this training program on a national scale. It will also support the grantee’s efforts to ensure that this program is accredited by the relevant authorities, which will assist in securing funding from the appropriate state structures.
