Other events details:
The Fellowship is an annual eight-month long programme aiming at capacity building and enhancing the leadership, management and professional skills of a core group of senior government officials, academics and practitioners primarily from Afghanistan. Sharing Hiroshima's lessons in post-conflict reconstruction, the Fellowship discusses important themes such as organization development and change, project design and management, and human resource development/management.It has been held annually since 2003 and counts over 300 graduates in its alumni network.
The Fellowship’s two long-term objectives are:
- To support an Afghan cadre in the application of their increased knowledge, and confidence in the transformation of their respective ministries;
- To build a committed and highly capable Fellowship community in Afghanistan which can serve as a resource for planning and implementing capacity-building and training activities at the local and national levels.
