NAYMOTE – Youth Local Government Toolkit
The toolkit was created to provide clear and concise information that can be used to positively shape young peoples' perception of local governance and other governance stakeholders' perceptions of youth. Knowledge provided through the toolkit is intended to also boost young people's awareness and sharpen their day-to-day decision making skills as participants in local administration and the country's efforts to decentralize government. Preparation of the toolkit included governance forums; media awareness programs to sensitize the local public about the toolkit, youth and governance issues; focus group discussions and validation sessions.

What's Going On with Our GranteesWritten by Michael Published in Impact Read 30666 times
The Lawyers' Environmental Action Team (LEAT) is a public interest environmental organization, based in Tanzania. Its purpose is to foster sound natural resources management and environmental protection.
LEAT received a grant through our Agriculture Advocacy Project which seeks to build a more robust advocacy movement for sustainable and equitable agricultural development in Africa. It encourages civil society to make use of the Comprehensive African Agriculture Development Program (CAADP) to hold governments more accountable to their constituents working in agriculture. In August 2011, LEAT received a $30,000 grant to develop a campaign to increase the budget for the agriculture sector in Tanzania, in order to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers. Specifically, the campaign is for a 10% increase in the National Budget for agriculture in the years 2012-2013.
In light of its objectives, LEAT produced a number of advocacy materials.
