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 enables 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 Foundation for Civil Society (FCS), conduct the course. FCS is an independent Tanzanian non-profit organization that provides grants and capacity building services to civil society organizations (CSOs) to enhance their effectiveness in enabling engagement of citizens in development processes. It has a track record of supporting organisations in Tanzania through their capacity development program.
The course is currently underway, with participants implementing their practical plans. For 6 months following the course, participants have access to advice and e-coaching from FCS.
