Real development starts at the local level. Our education and training programmes support professionals who strive to improve service delivery, support local economic development, and promote the rule of law. If you are an NGO professional, development officer, civil servant or elected representative, then register to join one of our training programmes and prepare to learn and experience governance from a local point of view. This is where change happens but it begins with you!
