About this grant

The Education and Training Unit works with community-based organizations to deepen democracy and community involvement in development. Mott supported it to provide training, develop resource materials, and enhance the capacity of local government, community development workers, and community-based organizations to improve service delivery to poor communities. This grant will assist the Education and Training Unit to provide support for building an effective interface between communities and local government around the key areas of local governance, democracy, and HIV/AIDS and to make available information and training materials on areas including access to basic human rights, local government, and HIV/AIDS.
