A training for Child Rights Club (CRC) leaders was conducted by Child Friendly Dimapur (CFD) ANMA Integrated Development Association (AIDA) on August 13 at AIDA, Conference Hall.
A press release by AIDA stated that the training was organised with an objective to enhance the leadership skills of the CRC leaders through capacity building and educate them on the four cardinal rights of the children as enshrined in the United Nation Convention for the Rights of a Child (UNCRC).
During the session, the club leaders were trained on the leadership, characteristics of a good leader, steps to become a good leader and roles and responsibility of the CRC leaders.
