In partnership with LINGOs, SIF offered its grantee organizations in Guatemala an opportunity to complete the PMD Pro1 certification, a project management course for the development sector run by GEPAL. This course is designed for professionals working as directors, project managers, supervisors, or other related positions in civil society organizations. The course is comprised of virtual classroom workshops as well as individual training sessions.
