    • Project

      This linking and learning facilitation managed by HURINET  spans 2 years and puts forward the voices of individuals too often relegated to the margins, telling untold stories, and empowering the public with the correct perspectives. The project brings together all Voice grantees and other stakeholders in Uganda in communities of practice, communities of stakeholders, learning sessions, and online/face-to-face meetings, and platforms. It also supports the Voice country team to gather data on the effectiveness of the grant making, and on the learning agenda of the individual grantees, including financial and logistic organisation of events and exchanges. Furthermore, it develops initiatives to address the gaps, and enhance participation and visualisation of the marginalised groups in national development processes as part of efforts towards realising the Leave No One Behind agenda.

      All this aligns with the strengths of HURINET  as they have been espousing process and learning as main drivers of its capacity building programme to bring about change and at the same time share best practices among units, groups or sectors.
