Mobilising Support

Burkina Faso
Type of event
Classroom course



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 Association Burkinabe de Fundraising (ABF), conduct the course. ABF implements the program in Burkina Faso and French-speaking Africa. The organisation facilitates the access of Civil Society organisations in Burkina Faso to access funding and technical support for their activities, projects and development programs at regional, national and international level.

September 10th - 12th : MS Phase One Training
