Mobilising Support (MS) is a course in which you learn to claim specific rights from local authorities or institutes. During the course you will make a plan in which you identify your opponents and your allies and plan your activities.
The course will enable learners to claim their economic and social rights, with relevant parties (domestic elites, companies, government, and so on). They learn how to apply for correct policy implementation at the local level and to cooperate with local duty bearers on an issue that is of direct importance to them.
Licensed local trainers from WACSI will conduct the training. WACSI was established by the Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA) to reinforce the capacities of civil society in the sub-region. WACSI strengthens civil society in West Africa to be responsive, collaborative, representative, resilient and influential through knowledge sharing, learning, connecting and influencing.
