Community Mobilization

Basic human rights demand that communities have the ability and capacity to make informed choices regarding their livelihoods and surroundings. Access to sanitation and, by extension, environmental best practices, are compromised by weak representation, outdated cultural practices, and disenfranchisement of communities in decision making.

GSEP empowers communities through training, capacity building and advocacy, ensuring they are well represented in decision-making processes affecting communities’ environment, livelihood and sanitation.
Advocacy and Capacity Building are key components under the Community Mobilization – notable projects under this activity include the Green Schools Project and the Manual Emptiers Project.
