Our Organisation was honoured and excited to welcome a team from Caritas Zambia and Alliance For Community Action with Support from European Union Zambia to come and assess our Capacity to implement the ASK project aimed at capacitating CSOs and citizens as actors for accountable public resource management (PRM).
The project seeks to strengthen the capacity of CSOs’/CBOs to implement effective rights-based advocacy for public resource accountability in Zambia.
In addition, the project aims to increase the ability of routine rights-based PRM accountability and improved service delivery by citizens. And finally, the project further seeks to increase understanding of duty bearers at a local level of PRM as a system of accountability to citizens.
CHESIZ will work to grow the routine and systematic demand for public resource accountability in Central Province with the specific aim of instituting the demand in the public.
After being recognized as Champions in Promoting and Advocating for Human Rights and Child Safeguarding and Protection Policies in Central Province of Zambia. CHESIZ was invited to develop a concept note to implement the Ask Project to European Union Zambia.
