Alliance Advocate Application Process
Alliance Advocates are selected through a rigorous training program designed to find those applicants who will benefit most from the training.
In 2018, Alliance Advocate training is shifting from a single, global training course, to several, regional courses.
The African Alliance Advocate training, which will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, in March 2018 is now open for applications.
Eligibility and expenses
The African Alliance Advocate training is open to Alliance members from the African region. Non-members and members of the Alliance from other regions cannot be considered.
Members will need to confirm the visa requirements to travel to Kenya.
We can only consider applicants who are decision-makers within their organization.
Travel, accommodation, and food subsidies will be available but successful participants should expect to cover some costs themselves.
