This also provides them an avenue to learn anew about good governance for sustainable development, alleviating poverty incidence, intergenerational environmental programs and practices.


The program started after the application screening that which was conducted from December 2016 to February 2017. On July 14, 22 fellows were given recognition of graduation for their significant participation and completion of the program.
