Advocacy Capacity Strengthening is one of the Advocacy Accelerator’s key focus areas, building the capacities of advocates, technical assistance providers (TAPs), and donors.
Since targeted advocacy requires specific skills, tools, tactics and strategies, we recognize the need for providing learning spaces across sectors and regions required for durable and impactful advocacy. The Advocacy Accelerator approach is values driven with the goal of driving locally based advocacy.
The Advocacy Accelerator provides diverse advocacy learning spaces both interactive in-person and virtual spaces alike, helping strengthen core advocacy skills.
The Advocacy Accelerator provides public benefit opportunities of learning at no cost as well as bespoke organisational training programs to numerous advocacy organisations, networks and movements as well as donor advocacy ecosystems The Accelerator is increasingly recognized as the partner of choice for advocacy capacity strengthening.
The Advocacy Accelerator has developed flagship programmes in response to needs identified in the African advocacy ecosystem. These trainings are developed based on priorities and needs curated from advocacy stakeholders and are continuously evolving.
