US Embassy launches training for peacekeepers
Jun 12, 2018-The US Embassy has launched a new series of inter-cultural communication and leadership trainings at the Birendra Peace Operations Training Centre (BPO-TC) and the National Police Academy.
The training will enable current and future Nepali peacekeepers to acquire the necessary English language skills, cultural competence and conflict-resolution abilities needed to succeed in their global deployments.
The training will also deepen their understanding of cultural norms in the Middle Eastern and African countries where Nepali peacekeepers are currently deployed.
During the opening ceremony US Defense Attaché Lt Col Gregory Pipes emphasised the importance of the training for professional development of Nepal Army trainers.
Twenty-five Nepali Army trainers will receive training in the month of June, followed by an additional two weeks of training for 70 Nepal Police members in Kathmandu.
