Barely few months to the end of the training program for the first batch of the ERuDeF Institute of Biodiversity and Non-profit Studies, IBiNS, ERuDeF President/CEO has reaffirmed his commitment to absorb the first batch of trainees into the organization.

Louis Nkembi was speaking during an evaluation meeting, which took place recently at IBiNS campus bringing together both staff and trainees of the Institute. He said only those who have fully met the training requirement will be absorbed. The President/CEO, who promised to absorb a significant proportion of the trainees during the matriculation ceremony of January 2013, maintained that ERuDeF will absorb all outgoing trainees depending on the availability of resources and their professional commitment to the organisation. This according to him, stemmed from the motivation that IBiNS was created as an institution to train graduates, who will serve the professional needs of ERuDeF as well as other organizations working in environmental and development fields. The trainees on their part lauded the choices of programs offered at IBiNS and expressed gratitude to ERuDeF for supporting them both academically and financially. Speaking during the meeting, the Director of Administration and Human Resource, Ita Nawom, appreciated the spirit of understanding and cooperation that has been going on between the trainees and the staff most especially during challenging moments. Meanwhile the trainees were called upon to submit individual internship proposals to the Program Coordinator for a two-month intensive professional training at any local organization of their choice.
