HOW TO PAY
ORGANIZATION CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT
AICS supports individuals and organizations to improve quality of services to children.
AICS was established primarily to address gaps in workforce and organization systems that compromised quality of services to children in Africa.
This has been confirmed through the ongoing Training Needs Assessment conducted by AICS (access through link https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd_xjys1DNo37dWhwi55ILHmIKZFQ68IgNctLH9yE9WeRftaw/viewform)
The AICS Associate Model places novices to learn under experts drawn from universities and highly experienced practitioners. The goal is to transfer skills in research, training and policy advocacy through action research. A mentor would often work with 3 to 5 mentees. A mix of academicians and practitioners is deliberately sought as well as across countries.
This is an informal session where individuals with interest in a discipline or knowledge area on children are invited to gather in a room/ hut over tea or coffee and learn from each other. They are conducted periodically and organized by AICS and Daystar University – the Institute for Child Development. A topic is identified from members requests and a expert speaker identified to lead the discussion. Lessons are picked including recommendation for policy or guidelines.
