The event began with presentations from the local committees where they illustrated their experience in Tajaawob and the work they have accomplished on the two previous advocacy campaigns in addition to their future plans for the new campaign. During the second part of the event, the Tajaawob committee-members were distributed into groups in order to conduct thematic debates/open discussions with the goal of disseminating learning.


Tajaawob is a program that promotes active citizenship that might lead to increased responsiveness from the authorities to the needs of the communities.
