ADVICE AND TRAININGS
For Karibia the advice and training of counterparts (local organizations and NGOs working on the field) are a fundamental tool in development cooperation and a path towards achieving the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals).
With a methodology of integrating Technical Support and Training on-the-Job, and through the exchange of information and initiatives, skills and experiences, and an appropriate combination between knowledge and know-how, we mutually manage to learn and enhance our role to obtain the institutional strengthening that we are looking for.
Therefore, an important strategic action of Karibia is to advise and train its counterparts; and thus generate and strengthen capacities, at an organizational and individual level, to ensure efficient, effective, transparent and sustainable management of all projects, thus facilitating the achievement of the objectives set. and consequently, a successful impact for the benefit of the most vulnerable and unprotected groups.
In short, build strong, more capable, independent and sustainable counterparts, and capable of responding to the needs of the context with the execution of pertinent projects.
Technical Support basically consists of transferring the necessary skills that allow local counterparts to strengthen their areas of intervention and management, mainly at the organizational level, and as well as in responding to the requirements of the counterparts themselves to reverse the situation of deficiencies and needs that they may present.
Through Technical Support, the counterparts are accompanied in their processes of change and continuous improvement, with an open and bidirectional approach, based on reciprocity and mutual learning, to achieve a competent, independent and sustainable organization, and capable and responsible for the management of their activities.
The support responds to the technical needs of the counterpart in specific areas of:
Thematic advice: institutional and social training, coordination, good practices, lessons learned, participation, communication
Project management support: Initiatives / Needs / Priorities, Project Identification, Design and Formulation, Indicators, Implementation, Accounting, Information Systems, Monitoring and Evaluation
Sustainability and economic viability: creativity, initial investment for local businesses, search for financing.
Training on-the-Job is training in the workplace, on a day-to-day basis; and is based on training mainly at the individual level,
the necessary skills, competencies and knowledge to improve one's own task performance of the specific job position he / she occupies.
Through mentoring methods, the Training on-the-Job carries out the training through a process of definition of objectives, implementation, observation and generation of corrective feedback that allows to immediately evaluate the degree of transfer of learning and if it were necessary, take corrective measures in the form of specific actions.
The main objective of Training on-the-Job is to combine learning and work in a natural way
to effectively train collaborators.
