Advocacy is all about influencing decision-makers, identifying issues on behalf of the disadvantaged, and providing solutions to these problems. It helps civil society make essential advancements to create a lasting positive change. Advocacy is crucial to have everyone's voice heard to develop the right solutions on the path to social justice.
Good advocacy can have a far greater impact than other intervention types, such as service delivery. Advocacy can be "large scale," i.e., advocating for policy change towards governments, or "smaller-scale," such as advocating for better services delivery in communities or better leadership at a communal level.
Our Impact Training on "Advocacy Campaigning" is your introduction to advocacy work. It will prepare you to take on an influential advocacy role on any issue. The training will help you develop fundamental advocacy skills and familiarize you with advocacy tools, strategies, and tactics. At the end of the training, you will confidently contribute to your campaign.
