I work with NGOS and have previously worked with UNICEF and UNFPA for 15 years . I have been coordinating a group of professionals called the Technical alliance for Social Change and provide TA support in the areas of Nutrition , Adolescents and Young people , SRH and Family Planning.
I am interested in teh training but do not have the resources having finished my contract with UNFPA and waiting for my pension which will start in two years.
