Kabelo Huma and Nondumiso Jwara organised financial management training at Koinonia, Johannesburg, for the diocesan projects funded by Catholic Relief Services and the Department of Health through the SACBC AIDS Office in early March 2012. They were assisted in the training by
Funanani Makhado and Theresa Bossert who led the participants in the important topics
related to accurate and effective financial management in their projects. These topics included budgeting, reporting, writing up a cashbook, filing, keeping all supporting documents. Everyone went away with a CD containing samples of all sorts of useful financial documents and information on fund-raising.
Rosanne Shields (Rural Development Support Programme) conducted the Mid-term Evaluation of the CRS Small Grants Programme through two interactive sessions with a special focus on the general situation around AIDS in different dioceses and communities, sustainability of projects, and the impact of the capacity building/trainings that SACBC AIDS Office has provided.
Three Catholic Relief Services delegates attended as observers.
