    • Project

      The Enhancing Secondary Students Civic Participation Through Mock Elections project empowers secondary school students with civic education through mock elections. The project is implemented in one of the divisions of Kampala. The project identifies a girls’ school to work with and a school for young persons with disabilities to ensure inclusion and mainstreaming. The third school that is chosen has both girls and boys, with and without disabilities. 

      The mock election takes on the format of an election. The elections are designed to give the students a better understanding of democratic institutions like local government, electoral commission, police among others. The project design is adopted from the country’s national voting system and procedures. Students will vote on a copy of real balloting measures, real candidates, and on real paper in the Mock Election.

      The project runs school-based election campaigns targeting the rest of the school community and outside the community to include girls and boys, parents and leaders to create more awareness on civic and voter education. The concept of election observing is introduced and strengthened to enable and empower students to know the importance of protecting their votes until a winner is announced. 

      The project empowers girls to participate and take on leadership positions with the long term goal of preparing and building their confidence to stand for elective positions in future. It enhances the capacity of girls to express their views themselves and be particularly interested in the political and electoral process. As their capacities develop, the students propose action plans as leaders and active participants in the democratic processes of the country.
