From the 7th to 11th November UNA Tanzania with partnership from Forum Syd and UNA Sweden conducted training to 12 community facilitators (6 men 6 women) who will be working with the community in Kengeja Shehiya in implementing the Rights Way Forward method in the community.

The Right(s) Way Forward is a community-based participatory tool that aims at empowering community people to access their rights and to analyze the community’s use of and control of resources in a sustainable way. The tool accentuates the equal distribution of resources between women and men, enabling community ownership of processes; and creating space for the dialogue between rights holders and the duty bearers to address the community’s concerns in a collective manner.

This is the first time that the approach is being implemented in Pemba, Community Facilitator’s training is the first step in reaching the community, now the trained community facilitators will work together with the Kengeja community and guide the community members to identify a challenge that the community feels like is critical to be addressed, and in the end develop a community action plan that will later be implemented.
