Speak Up Africa
Speak Up Africa are a policy and advocacy action tank dedicated to catalyzing leadership, enabling policy change, and increasing awareness for sustainable development in Africa. The organisation works across the continent and globally to support SDGs 1 to 6 in transforming societies throughout Africa and making sure every man, woman, and child is empowered to live a long and healthy life.
Emerging Ag was delighted to work with Speak Up Africa to develop a series of training modules around advocacy and strategic communications for advocacy. The objective of the modules was to help key Speak Up Africa stakeholders, including representatives from civil society organisations, national level organisations, technical partners and key media in effectively communicating the importance of action on public health issues, formulating clear ‘asks’ for decision-makers, and communicating progress. The training modules also included a focus on advocacy to funders, to increase civil society organisations and other stakeholders’ ability to secure funding for their activities.
As part of this project, Emerging Ag delivered three sets of training modules in both French and English, comprising a total of 21 PowerPoint slideshows, tailored case studies and practical exercises. Each set was accompanied by a Trainer’s Manual, providing best practices and a detailed set of guidelines for trainers to deliver training sessions in line with the needs of Speak Up Africa’s key stakeholders.
