Economic growth requires capacity building and skills development, Palli Karma-Sahayak Foundation (PKSF) Chairman Qazi Kholiquzzaman Ahmad said.
He spoke at the closing ceremony of its “Food Security 2012 Bangladesh-Ujjibito” project and presentation of the findings of its final evaluation report, at PKSF Bhaban in Dhaka on Sunday.
The project was funded by the European Union and was jointly implemented by PKSF and Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) from November 2013 to April 2019.
Under the project, LGED implemented activities on cash for work and PKSF implemented activities for skills, capacity development and awareness raising of project participants.
Ahmad said Ujjibito has addressed the multidimensional needs of the poor.
“I will call it a significantly successful story and promise to ensure the sustainability of the interventions by Ujjibito for our country’s development,” he said.
