Alliance Advocates 2018

Following the Alliance Empowerment Program mid-term evaluation, we are changing the way that we will deliver the Alliance Advocates training in 2018.

To align more closely to our members’ regional needs and cultures, instead of one global Advocates training course, we will run several regional courses. The first regional practical training will be offered for member NGOs from Africa in March in Nairobi, Kenya. A call for applications will soon be sent to all members from African regions.
