Community Development Perspective to Civic and Voter Education

This training manual was developed to give more precision and direction to communities on Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) for community development. It will also serve as a tool for civil societies in the HRBA space for improved results. This will enable the grassroots to sustainably undertake their civic engagement programmes while adapting this to their environment. If communities can organize and present quality evidence to challenge the poor quality of government services, there will be increased confidence in community processes by governments and institutions. The manual is indeed expected to cultivate a sense of collaboration amongst stakeholders in the private and public sectors, and civil societies to empower communities to hold governments and service providers accountable for their development.
