The training, he added, would serve as a guide for the new executive.

In his keynote address, Dembo Kuyateh, chairperson of KEYCDA Board, highlighted the importance of capacity building, saying the more one is capacitated, the more innovative the person becomes.
“KEYCDA started as a small youth group before expanding to capture both children and girls. I therefore challenge participants to deliver in their respective positions after the training.”
