“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin

Learning never ends and to be on par with the innovating changes in communication and technology, MACOSS took the opportunity of providing training to its Executive Members and staff in a workshop on Website Management which was assisted by Mr. Akhilesh Baboolull from AYB Creations (https://ayb-creations.tech/). This training session held on 20 May 2021 at the MACOSS Training Unit, comes under the project of FORUS, L’Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and European Union (EU).

The website designer provided technical knowledge on how to manage a website.  A website management involves several steps and he went through it fluidly so that the participants can grasp the intricacies of it. A learning experience for the Executive Members including the staff who got the chance of learning the technicalities behind the management of a website.  An occasion for the Members  to learn more about the online world and to share this experience in their respective Non- Governmental Organizations as well.

The President of MACOSS, Mr. Suraj Ray closed the project by sharing, “We have been able to complete the  MACOSS Website Project which was co-financed by FORUS. It was a wonderful experience. I thank everybody particularly FORUS, our donors and all key stakeholders associated with the project and  for helping us down the lane. Today, we have a clear visibility. Our members shall now be able to use the MACOSS Website (www.macoss.mu ) to project their work in the forefront so that stakeholders may appreciate their contributions to the community. I think this is the role of MACOSS, to have enabled  staff and our Members together in this endeavor.”
