Capacity Building equips stakeholders and beneficiaries to perform their functions in a better manner at the time of need. Additionally, this is a process through which individuals, organizations and societies obtain, strengthen and maintain the capabilities to set and achieve their own development objectives over time. Consequently, building capacity can be defined as “efforts to strengthen the competencies and skills of a target organization, group or community so that the target could drive development efforts, or in a broader sense development, in a sustainable way in the future” (Walker et al. 2011).
NICE Foundation runs and facilitates various capacity building activities especially on Disaster Risk Management- DRM and Disaster Risk Reduction-DRR; Health education and system support; Educational empowerment and physical services improvement. NICE also works with other institutions to make its contribution wider and meaningful.
