Training on Applied Research Methods for NGOs

JCI Curepipe in collaboration with Atelier Gintzy hosted a training on Applied Research Methods for NGOs. As we are embarking on community projects, we also would like to know more about social research to identify a need or community problem to be solved. Research helps NGOs to achieve sustenance in their application of community based interventions. Research also helps NGO develop partners such as Government Organizations and from the private sector. The trainer was Dr Renginee G. Pillay, the founder of Atelier Gintzy, which offers freelance academic coaching, writing and CSR/legal consultancy services. She has over 15 years experience in the Higher Education sector (UK, France, Mauritius), with expertise in writing, lecturing, teaching and mentoring/coaching. She is also a Fellow of the UK Higher Education Academy, and an External Reviewer for the Mauritius Tertiary Education Commission.
