Black Sash has embarked on a series of 2-day "Making all Voices Count" (MAVC) training-of-trainers workshops across the country.
These workshops, conducted with partner organisations, will capacitate local monitors to monitor service delivery across selected sites in areas such as social grants and primary health care.
Pictured are workshops conducted in the Western Cape (above) and KZN (below).
Trained monitors are using technology to collect and transmit monitoring data. Monitoring has started at various sites in the Western Cape and data has started to come in reflecting information about service delivery at selected sites.
The project is part of a global initiative which aims to empower CBOs to take ownership of and participate actively in citizen-based monitoring.
