Rural Youth Capacity Building and Leadership Training

RAFO builds the capacity of rural youth so that they are able to demand their access to social services through engaging duty bearers in dialogue. We do this at an early age through partnering with rural primary and secondary schools, tertiary training institutions and engaging them in debates on issues affecting rural communities. RAFO also conducts and runs the “rural parliament” where rural communities engage in debates on issues affecting them. RAFO provides the required resources and the associated leadership to guide such debates and documents the issues raised and finally follows up with the duty bearers for solutions. RAFO organizes a feedback meeting where duty bearers provide answers to the issues raised.
