The essence of the training workshop was to equip the nominated DLOs with the requisite skills to perform their roles effectively towards the implementation of the GNHR data collection exercise in their respective districts.

Selected DLOs will serve and work as an intermediary for GNHR and their respective MMDAs to facilitate data collection activities.

They are also to resolve conflicts in communities during data collection and undertake case management issues by providing support to the Community Facilitator.

Addressing participants, the Head of the Ghana National Household Registry, Dr. Richard Adjetey on behalf of the Management of MoGCSP, tasked the selected DLOs to be committed towards the data collection as they play a crucial role in the success of the entire exercise.

He added that data collected in both Regions will be used by the various MMDAs in the planning of activities towards the delivery of Social protection programmes.

The Participants, most of whom were Social Welfare Officers, were trained on the Mandates and Objectives of GNHR, Data Collection Process and Case Management.

The Ghana National Household Registry is a unit under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection with the mandate to create a single social registry to among other things, serve as a primary mechanism for targeting Social Protection interventions in Ghana.

The GNHR has so far collected data in the Upper West, East, Northern, and Savannah Regions of Ghana and is set to begin the same in Central, Volta and Oti Regions.
