ENCISS sets trainees on course for communications success
The ENCISS programme announces an exciting new communications training series that will help organisations improve how they communicate with others. The training series aims to strengthen the way that they integrate communications and influencing strategies into their programmes, and to improve how they share success stories.
In addition, the training will help civil society organisations and government agencies to identify target audiences, and the most effective and creative ways to get their messages across.
The communications training will be held between 16th and 20th April, 2012 in Freetown, Bo and Makeni. It is specifically designed for staff involved in communications from organisations receiving ENCISS grants. The training will provide practical tools and tips to help organisations develop creative and impactful communications.
“Open and effective communications from government agencies and organisations is key to delivering lasting change in Sierra Leone,” says ENCISS Communications Manager Charlris Okafor. “This is why we are equipping our partners to become passionate and creative communicators.”
The 80 participants come from a range of CSO organisations and government agencies that have received grants from ENCISS. These include participants from Freetown Bo, Kenema, Kailahun, Bonthe and Makeni who have received grants to implement projects and programmes that focus on the ENCISS thematic areas of gender equality, youths, decentralisations and governance, justice and security, and 2012 elections.
ENCISS seeks to strengthen the relationship between state and non-state actors to promote pro-poor policies in Sierra Leone. The goal of ENCISS is to improve accountability and to strengthen citizens’ voice, enhance participation in decision making and promote access to information.
