The member organizations of the Right2Grow Burkina Faso consortium met with the Civil Society Organizations involved in the implementation of the project in the North-Central region, in order to review the collaboration, the various achievements and especially the challenges to be met for the continuation of the program.
Within the framework of the project, about twenty CSOs in the north-central region have benefited from different capacity building sessions, aiming essentially at making them autonomous and capable of defending their rights by themselves and working for the well-being of children, particularly in terms of nutrition, hygiene, water, sanitation and food security.
After one year of the project, the CSOs were trained in budget monitoring, filming and editing techniques with a smartphone, public speaking, denunciation, gender-sensitive advocacy, among others.
At the end of these trainings, these CSOs proposed plans of action for advocacy and behavior change, in order to sensitize communities and the private sector to commit to improving the food and nutrition situation of children.
On the other hand, it will allow for advocacy and lobbying initiatives towards local authorities for better decisions and policies in this region facing a security and humanitarian peril.
The exchange meeting between the consortium and these CSOs of the North-Central region also allowed for a review of the program's perspectives but also of the challenges to be met in the future.
Both parties left on a note of satisfaction.Back to overview
