FP2020 Project - Training of Trainer Programmes (TOT)
The Family Planning Association of Sri Lanka has been assigned the position of Civil Society Focal Point, with the specific target of assisting and complementing the services provided by the public sector. Working alongside a coalition of CSOs, FPA’s mission is to drive progress in planning and implementation of the country’s FP2020 goals and this project is supported by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the people of Japan. The CSOs will work with key populations, youth, working women, and older women, for whom coverage is limited by the government sector’s services.
Under the UNFPA FP2020 Project, FPA is working in four Provinces (Southern, Central, Eastern and Northern) and in each Province FPA has to conduct 06 Training of Trainers (ToT) Programmes in each District, where staff and volunteers selected from various CSOs will be trained. The first such programme, one in Sinhala and the other in Tamil was held in the Nuwara Eliya District on 27th and 28th August, 2020. Dr. P Sudarshan, former MOMCH Nuwaraeliya conducted the Tamil medium training programme and Dr. M Gamage, MOH Nuwara Eliya conducted the Sinhala programme together with FPA’s resource persons.
