Strong and democratic social movements are the main driving force for meaningful human rights advocacy. Hakijamii remains committed to working closely in assisting and strengthening of such movements throughout the country. On the 12th September 2011 Hakijamii organized a training session on leadership, governance, financial management and information, communication and technology for members of the Kisumu Social Rights Association (KISORA) in Kisumu town at Magadi Catholic Social Hall. The objective of the training was to enhance the knowledge and skills of KISORA members on democratic leadership, accountable and transparent governance, basic financial systems, resource mobilization and the effective use of information, communication and technology. .
Participants were called upon to identify some of the immediate leadership, governance and capacity gap issues and come up with suggestions on how to address them. An action plan was developed to address areas of collaboration and networking, internal reporting, membership contributions, accountability and transparency as well as effective use of information, communication and technology in human rights’ advocacy. They plan to use the knowledge gained in this training to improve their internal leadership mechanism and fundraising for the organization.
