Capacity Building

MITRA Samaj excels in capacity building through a cadre of highly qualified trainers with deep subject matter expertise. We tailor programs to specific needs, offering diverse training methods, including technology-driven approaches, and robust assessment tools. Our ongoing monitoring and post-training support ensure effective skill application.
