Internet provides different opportunities advocates can use to increase their impact and achieve stated goals. This webinar presents a set of online tools aimed at developing the skills and knowledge of the advocacy staff, developed by World Vision Middle East and Eastern Europe regional office.

World Vision (WV) is one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the world, fighting to protect the rights of children through advocacy, humanitarian aid, emergency response and community development. World Vision is present in ten countries across the Middle East and Eastern Europe region and has more than 260 advocacy staff worldwide. World Vision staff is engaged in local, national and international level advocacy targeted at impacting the lives of the most vulnerable children.

 The set of tools, WV has developed, include:

  1. Self-paced e-learning platform on advocacy, called Advocacy e-Lab
  2. Instructor led training
  3. Online Advocacy Community of Practice

Join us to learn more about these tools and the experience behind their development, to preview the sites, discuss the lessons learnt and ask questions about these instruments.

Bring your own questions and recommendations from similar initiatives, we look forward to hearing from you.
