ABCD Training of Trainers 2014
Ikhala Trust and Elamanzi with the support of the CS Mott Foundation have produced an ABCD Toolkit to support ABCD facilitation especially in communities. An ABCD ToT course was hosted from 19 – 23 May 2014 to train a cadre of ABCD trainers and officially launch the Toolkit. This was the second time that a ToT has been organized by Ikhala. Although the course is still fairly new, the recommendations arising from the first pilot could be incorporated to improve its design.
The course took place over 5 days at St Lukes Retreat Centre in Port Elizabeth and twelve facilitators were invited to attend. The organizations represented included: Interchurch Local Development Agency, Raphael Centre, West Coast Community Foundation, Social Change Assistance Trust, Matatiele EDA, Calabash Trust and I am Somebody. The grants administrator of Ikhala Trust also attended.
It is envisaged that the ToT and Toolkit will expand the footprint of ABCD facilitation especially in Eastern Cape Province.
