The Right to Know, Right to Education Project envisioned a scenario in which a wide spectrum of CSOs, citizens and decision-makers have the ability to access rights-based education that influences policy-making. Its framework is grounded in active citizen engagement and participation. The DFID-sponsored effort to build commitment by African countries to the provision of universal and free basic education as outlined in their Constitutions and subsidiary legislation calls for the development of a Capacity Building Strategy based on existing efforts and best practices. !is strategy should advance the implementation of Right to Know, Right to Education’s capacity building targets as established in the annual plans.
The nucleus of our project impact and results is centred at community level. The training is therefore a medium to achieving maximum learning and positive impact at community level, where parents are more involved in the welfare of their children, the school’s governance culture is monitored and relevant information is available to all and learners are firmly placed at the centre of the school’s priorities.
