Food for the Hungry conducted an extensive, 5-day commodity management echo training for 31 staff from all five food security program implementing partners in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to address the lack of capacity in commodity programming and management in that country. “Echo training” is a process where people who have attended regional trainings train others at the country level to help disseminate the knowledge gained at the regional trainings. Food for the Hungry used TOPS-created materials and modules, but adapted them using DRC-specific events and challenges. Participants agreed to share their knowledge with colleagues that were not able to attend, and partners in DRC will continue to share information on how to address commodity management challenges.
