We had good experience because while the organization was building capacity among leaders and volunteers at the same time the Foundation for Civil Society invited us for similar trainings ie financial management in Dar es salaam so we had time to share experience, strength challenges and able to strengthening skills among ourselves
We team spirit is good for development of our organization
It is possible for the organization to grow if we all work hard and build network
