He said IRM is committed to building the capacities of rural communities and empowering them to harness their true human, social and economic potential for an improved quality of life.
“The institute aims to reduce poverty prevailing among the rural masses through a variety of training programmes. It also focuses on building a strong team of development professionals not only within the RSPs but across the country and region including government staff, elected members of the local bodies, civil society and corporate sector,” he said. He said various professionals from the non-profit sector, donor agencies, government organizations, corporate sector and RSPs benefited from the vast spectrum of IRM training and human resource management services.
