ANIQUEM and CAFA staff are all Peruvian and are trained professionals who could benefit from attending courses or professional seminars. However neither they nor ANIQUEM can afford the costs involved. CAFA’s capacity building program supports professional development for the staff at ANIQUEM. As examples we sponsored Jessica to attend a sewing course on pressure garments; we had Emily from Canada provide occupational health training; and we have supported skill development in public speaking.
In 2011 we have sponsored English training, a joint CAFA / ANIQUEM staff planning session and for Carmen a course in family dynamics.
