Advocacy

we advocate for positive change across a broad network of organisations to increase awareness of the issues faced by the hardest to reach

Advocacy Programs

We understand that development challenges exist within broad complex systems, influenced by government, civil society and the private sector.  With this systems approach in mind, we advocate for positive change across a broad network of organisations to increase awareness of the issues faced by the hardest to reach; to provide a platform for collaboration, knowledge sharing and innovation; and to provide technical evidence, guidance and support for effective community focussed development policies
