Advocacy

Ensure people have access to appropriate technical, legal information.
Ensure the right of the community are not violated economically, politically and socially.
Ensure that women participate in decision making at all levels.
Empower the communities to adjust their existing social structures to new conditions and problems.

Strategies:

  • Initiate workshops with the communities to assess the appropriateness of their own social structures as well as the structures at more general administrative levels to address their specific problems and issues
  • Policy and social action based research and analysis
  • Initiate programmes and campaigns to empower communities to advocate for their rights
  • Initiate programmes for policy analysis with communities
  • Initiate programmes to ensure people have access to appropriate legal information and services
