FCS enhances conflict resolution skills to 36 local organisations

A total of 36 Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) from different parts of Tanzania have enhanced their skills on conflict resolution through the tailor-made training offered in Dar es Salaam by the Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) in mid October 2015. 

Speaking after the training, Kenneth Maseti from Umoja wa Vijana wa Kuelimisha na Kusaidiana Mbega (UVIKITU) said, “before the training I did not know how to take better precautions and mitigate sources of conflicts. But following this training I have been able to understand key indicators of conflicts and how to manage the process.”

“I have also known ways to resolve conflicts occurring in our organisations and communities through reconciliation, judicial procedures and even by empowering the available local conflict resolution committees”, added Maseti.

For his part, Felix Nyitema, from Community Development Initiative Support Organisation (CODISO) said the training will be beneficial towards maintaining peaceful co-existence within local organisations in the sector.

“We have witnessed internal conflicts occurring in our local organisations from time to time. I for one will use the tools acquired in this training to mitigate any disputes in our local organisations to ensure our sustainability.

The training facilitator, Mr. Daniel Lema, however emphasized on the need for CSO members to understand how to deal with any type of conflicts that may arise in communities. He was also of the view that the training module is key in identifying types and sources of conflicts, ways of resolving conflicts and the effects of conflicts.
