Governance, Policy & Advocacy
In order to be able to make meaningful change to the people of our community, it is critical to focus efforts on establishing proper policies and governance. We have a team of specialists in this field to implement programs that focus on civil education, rights promotion, good governance and social & political accountability.
Through these programs we are able to provide platforms to small holder farmers, PSNs, and PoCs creating an enabling environment to demand for pro-poor policies and effective service delivery. A multi-disciplinary approach is utilized to this end, such as story telling (Tinfayo) to raise citizens’ awareness on their social, political and economic rights.
This unit also advocates against any form of exploitation & abuse, and promotes accountable leadership and a corruption free society.
