I learnt new things such as meaningful youth engagement, inclusion and safeguarding. My organization is now well equipped to advocate for polices that will influence change.

The training focused on advocacy, a rights-based approach to development, stakeholder mapping and analysis, budget tracking, project cycle management, gender and social inclusion, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E).

I will be going back to my organization with a lot of new learning and ideas. This knowledge will definitely help my organization move forward and strengthen its activities toward promotion of community voice, and accountability.
