Organized by the Church World Service Japan (CWS), the week-long training included 21 participants from NGOs, UN and governmental aid agencies.
The training was the first event organized by the new JQAN (Quality and Accountability Network in Japan), launched in July by 17 member NGOs and led by CWS Japan.
According to Yukiko Maki of CWS, “the highlight of the training was the participant-led sessions and writing our own action plans on the last day.”
