Grassroots advocacy

Research CBS Rwanda

Community Based Sociotherapy Rwanda promotes evidence-based grassroots advocacy and strengthens citizen’s participation to contribute to raising awareness about community issues. CBS Rwanda creates safe spaces of the groups to go beyond their personal and family issues, identify and analyze the community issues that influence the daily lives of people and form a risk factor for sustainable peace and development of their communities. Through the “People’s Parliament for Peace (PP4P)” activities, our advocacy process involves citizen-based advocacy, acknowledgement and action. The aim of the grassroots advocacy approach is to promote bottom-up informed decisions and policies, whereby the voice of people at the grassroots level is rendered louder to ignite other community members, leaders at different levels, policy makers and implementers.
