This project sought funding from CAP(Capable Partners) to do institutional strengthening of local NGOs to engage in advocacy initiatives for the betterment of the lives of the people the NGOs work for. The overall goal of this project is to generate learning for replication on how local NGOs can be strengthened to promote and sustain citizen-government engagement through advocacy. These local NGOs work on the following three issues respectively: law reform to improve the rights of Moslem women within marriage; improving access to justice for low income youth; and improving access to healthcare especially for children, the elderly and HIV/AIDS patients.
