About

The only impossible journey is the one you never start!

Through the “Political Mobilizers for Change – PMC” Project, REFORM worked to establish a group of social and political mobilizers and empower them to be agents of change in their respective communities. REFORM also contributed through this project to increasing the social cohesion amongst different social groups based on our Social Transformation approaches.

The “Political Mobilizers for Change” Project enhanced the acceptance of women participation in social and political mobilization processes. This was achieved through training the target groups on social transformation in conflict. Thus, women became more aware of the forces that hinder their full partnership in the decision-making processes. Furthermore, men had more acceptable attitudes towards women participation in the decision-making processes.

In addition, through enhancing the capacities of women and youth in policy paper development and designing campaigns, they became able to effectively lobby for more responsive local and public policies. As a result, the target groups became more able to hold decision making processes accountable to the communities’ needs and challenge exclusionary patterns in the democratic processes.
