We are very proud to be part of the Leadership in Local Governance programme from Swedish International Centre for Local Democracy, with our Mentor Prof Deon Pretorius for 2021.
The main objective of this training programme is to improve local and institutional governance. This can be achieved by making municipalities more equitable and inclusive. During this training programme, participants will work on change projects that aim to improve their municipality's ability to be fair, inclusive, transparent and accountable. By strengthening the capacity of the participating teams and the networks available to them, this program aims to promote democracy and end poverty in all its forms in our partner communities.
Furthermore, the programme hopes to deliver:
- Gained skills and abilities to communicate and advocate on issues of inclusive governance
-Expanded local, regional, national and international network.
The countries involved are: Kenya, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia.
