2008:51 The Civic Education Network Trust (CIVNET) in Zimbabwe

Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
Despite some of the reservations regarding measuring impact, the CIVNET project has nevertheless had profound implications for those communities that have been systematically marginalised politically and economically over the last 10-15 years - and who have only been sought out during election times by the competíng political players. The level of consiousness that has been raised through the training programmes has created a paradigm shift in how individual community members perceive themselves, how they understand the current realities in their communities and in their country. Their perception and analysis of their demands and needs are tested in how they practically manage and implement the "action plans"that have been put in place to deal with their most pressing community issues,.
