Advocacy Capacity Enhancement
Our foothold is in enhancing advocacy capacities of African individuals in the arenas of health, human rights and Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) in Africa using the Africentrism approach. Although our primary focus is on the Ahaki Pillar- “Capacities of African Individuals”, our interventions also directly contribute to the enrichment of other Ahaki pillars namely; “Positive African Narratives”; “African Institutions” and “Institutional Capacities of African NGOs”.
We acknowledge that whereas there are many African individuals with expertise in the health, human rights and SRHR advocacy arena, many still need to be skilled in conducting advocacy which speaks to the African context unswervingly. It is for this reason that we have tailored interventions that offer platforms to foster sharing experiences and best practices, and exchange learning among African individuals. We are the only place in Africa that skills social justice advocates using the Africentrism approach.
Ahaki has earned its spot at the centre of the Health, Human Rights and SRHR advocacy arena in Africa as the only African institution intentionally working to capacitate actors in a bid to create solutions that contextually address African problems. We have invested in robust infrastructure to facilitate learning across Africa and the world.
Our target audience includes; African researchers, scholars, activists, research fellows and students whom we engage through: offering exchange learning platforms like seminars, dialogues, visits to well accomplished institutions and organizations and fellowship programs. We also develop curricular and conduct virtual and in-person trainings.
We offer strategically designed and tailored trainings, mentorships, coaching and a platform for exchange learning to meet the growing need and demand for preparation and skills enhancement for African individuals and organizations to undertake informed and impactful advocacy at national, regional and global platforms. We also undertake trainings on Ahaki’s thematic areas; identify and undertake targeted capacity enhancement initiatives for staff to ensure sustained, effective and efficient programme/project support guided by Ahaki’s thematic areas of work.
In execution of our mandate, we utilize research and knowledge products developed under evidence generation as reference materials for trainings which we deliver in collaboration with experts, government ministries and departments, civil society organizations, universities and other learning institutions nationally, regionally and globally.
