Capacity Building for the Public & Private Sector

Visions Center conducted workshops in partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the Ministry of Social Development to build institutional capacities of charity organizations in terms of developing a solid organizational structure, promoting values of good governance, and institutionalizing concept of transparency and accountability. Through these workshops, which were conducted in central and southern Jordan, an open dialogue between the different entities facilitated in identifying new initiatives to be taken towards institutional reform, within the participating charity organizations and the Ministry of Social Development.
