" I have gained from this training in communication especially on writing impact stories and taking strategic photos" Ms. Medrace Balira said at the ICCO Cooperation members capacity building workshop hosted by RWECO at Rwenzori International Hotel, Kasese Municipaltiy from 4th-5th April, 2013. The training was facilitated by  Rieneke de Man, Liana  Hoornweg and Connie. The training came as a result of the gaps in impact story writing that the 16 partners of ICCO Cooperation in Uganda expressed during the project implementation in 2012.
