From 2018-2020, Democracy Works Foundation funded and co-funded by WFD and the European Union, is supporting local campaign and advocacy organisations in Limpopo, Northern Cape and North West provinces to participate in Provincial Legislature proceedings.
The programme provides training and mentoring on how to conduct research and engage the public in important issues.
By connecting Members of Provincial Legislatures (MPLs) with organisations working to advance the rights of women and traditionally marginalised groups such as young people and persons with disabilities (PWDs) the programme will ensure relevant policy areas are better represented at the provincial level.
Active in three provinces: Limpopo, Northern Cape and North West, the programme also works with MPLs on provincial Portfolio Committees, which are responsible for health, safety and security issues.
