The Human Rights training impart skills in advocacy and community organization. Citizens learn the important skills of multi-stakeholder engagement and the rights-based approach to advocacy.
Community engagement is the axis on which everything balances. Community engagement allows us to build the social capital we need for Uzalendo project to be successful. It builds acceptance and encourages community ownership of the project and its objectives.
Public forums provide the space where men, women, young people and persons with disability discuss and prioritize their community needs. They also explore strategies of human rights advocacy based on their own socio-economic and political context.
The Uzalendo Project’s mission is to leverage the inclusion of traditionally poor and sidelined voices in governance and service delivery processes in their communities; specifically persons with disability, women and youth in order to influence and secure positive outcomes as far as enjoyment of their basic rights accorded under the Kenyan Constitution’s Article 43.
