Our missionWe like to keep it short, Empower Advocacy believes in three key-words:
Educate: Campaigners and active citizens on the guidelines of Advocacy
Innovate: and come up with the most influential tools, strategies, and tactics
Advocate: Your causes with influential campaigns
Why Empower Advocacy?
Cause advocates, activists, and almost everyone eager to launch a campaign has always been struggling to come up with strategies that actually work! Among the many reasons why campaigns fail in achieving their goals or in making the right impact is because of poor strategies, and sometimes even the most brilliant strategies will also fail if the campaigners do not have adequate information on the process of creating effective advocacy campaigns, it all starts from data collection, problem analysis, solution finding, stakeholder analysis, stakeholder targeting, team building, message building and message delivery, passing through strategies and tactics.
Empower Advocacy focuses on helping advocates get all of them right by offering the theory and the know how in a very smooth and case tailored learning process.
How do we do it?
