Community Actions

After carrying out the various programmes, communities were capacitated to dialogue with their local authorities as well as act on preventing the continuous rise in human rights abuses. They initiated and mobilised themselves with the help from the education department to come up with various courses of community action. The people expressed their concerns and needs to their constituency representatives through a petition which they wrote, signed and delivered to the relevant authorities, including the police. The petition demanded better services, and for the targeted authorities to always bear in mind that they must not short-change people through working and operating on partisan basis.

Communities were encouraged to expose any form of human rights abuses that they experienced while demanding accountability from their local authorities and those with the mandate to serve the people. The people wrote to their local authorities, pushing for policy change and giving room for more participation in governance and developmental issues.
