Voice to the People (V2P)
The objective of the V2P project is to enable communities to hold duty bearers to account, leading to improved responsiveness and service delivery, supported by evidence based learning and advocacy in Anambra State. The specific objectives include among other things to improve skills, organization and confidence gained by marginalized groups, communities and civil society to enable them to demand their rights and improve institutionalized dialogue and interaction taking place between marginalized groups, community groups, civil society and local and state level authorities. The role of Centre LSD in the project is to provide the programmes link between state and national level government. Centre LSD will strengthen the capacity of partners and engage in advocacy and policy influencing that will bring about changes in policies and practices that will support the best enabling environment for improved service delivery. Ultimately, it will enable vulnerable communities to both have a voice and act effectively in relation to decisions affecting them and thereby improve their wellbeing as a result of improved service delivery. The project was funded by ChristianAid/USAID in the first year to the tune of GPB114,470.
