Our Founder, Damilola Iyiola, was a delegate at the Southwestern Stakeholders’ Consultative Workshop held at Premier Hotel, Ibadan, Oyo State.
She had the opportunity of reviewing the draft National Community Driven Development (CDD) Policy for Nigeria, prepared by the Federal Project Support Unit (FPSU) and Community and Social Development Agency (CSDA).
The represented stakeholders were the Board Members and General Managers from CSDA, representatives from the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), Economic Planning, Ministry of Justice, Supervisory Agencies, Academia and other relevant Policy Makers/Implementers.
Her syndicate group, which comprised of stakeholders from CBOs, NGOs, FBOs, CBAs, was assigned the responsibility of reviewing the roles of Beneficiary Communities/Vulnerable Groups, CBOs, NGOs, FBOs, CBAs, and Private Sectors in the Community Driven Development Policy. She was able to bring her expertise in policy making on board. Also, she served as the Secretary of her Syndicate group, which availed her the opportunity of bringing her administrative skills to bare.
The feedback and commendation during and after the workshop were remarkable. We look forward to future engagement in effective policy making and implementation towards a sustainable community development in Nigeria and Africa at large.
