On May 26, we underwent a First Aid Training facilitated by Melchizedek Hospital. This was conducted at our H.N.P offices. The training was to help us be in a position of saving people who might be injured at the Kibera Town Centre. The training was very helpful because once we open the centre, employees will be handling a lot of machinery which may expose them to getting injuried. And even with the best of preventative strategies in place, we have to be prepared if the customers get injured. All these skills were first level skills, to help people before they are rushed to the hospital.
Capacity building is essential to any project success story – anywhere!
Many water projects have been built without providing solutions to the inherent and complicated problems regarding long-term sustainability – it is shortsighted simply introducing water and sanitation facilities without providing the means for repairs and maintenance, both financially and technically.
