Communicating for advocacy is an important aspect of an organization’s work. Unfortunately, the concept has remained ‘abstract and complicated’ in the minds of many people working within the development sector. Many have expressed the need to have a clearer understanding of what advocacy is and how it might support the work of NGOs and CBOs. This training is delivered to support participants’ understanding of advocacy, with a focus on the importance of communication, as well as providing practical assistance on how to undertake advocacy work. The training is about communicating for advocacy. Participants receive skills to influence people and institutions in power to create an environment which protects the rights, health and welfare of everyone, particularly the poor and most vulnerable.

Course Objectives

At the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • To build a broader understanding of the concept of advocacy and the contribution it can make to an organization
  • Recognize the elements and importance of planning for advocacy and communication work
  • To enhance the participants’ capacity to effectively identify advocacy issues, document them and engage the suitable audience in their work
  • Explore the diversity of participatory activities, methodologies and approaches that combine in effective advocacy and communications efforts
  • Develop communication skills (in order to advocate) and understand the use and role of media and lobbying

Who Should Attend?

This can be used with either one individual NGO/CBO or a group of NGOs/CBOs. For some sections, it may be more valuable for participants to work with colleagues from their own organization. This is because some sections address the relationship between specific advocacy work and the organization carrying out the work. The course can be tailored to suit not for profit sectors e.g. community groups, larger charities, NGOs, and faith-based organizations.
