LAPO mentors NGOS on operational, financial management


By Charles Nwaoguji


Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) has organized an intensive 
capacity development training for 46 Non-Governmental, Community Based 
Organisations undergoing its mentoring programme across the country.

The 2-day training which was held in Benin City was facilitated by Prof. 
Omokhoa Adeleye, a Management Consultant and Community Physician at the 
University of Benin with Prof. Andrew Tafamel of the Department of 
Business Administration, the University of Benin and Bolaji Otaniyen 
Goodnews, a Senior Accountant at the University of Benin Teaching 
Hospital as co-facilitators.

The operational and service delivery capacities of the young 
organisations were built in the core areas of financial management, 
accounts reconciliation and financial reporting, budgeting, networking 
and partnership building through technology, especially in the era of 
COVID-19.

In his remarks, the Executive Director of LAPO, Dr Ayobami Honestus 
Obadiora charged the participants to leverage on the knowledge and 
lessons garnered from the training to develop their competencies and 
grow stronger in their development work.

The LAPO Mentoring programme was instituted by the CEO, Dr Godwin 
Ehigiamusoe in 2006 to support and build the capacities of young 
non-governmental/community-based organisations towards actualising their 
vision.

Activities under the programme include capacity development workshops, 
seminars, internship, equipment donation and networking.
