Together with Innovation for Change, a demand-driven technical resource lab for six, networked, regional Innovation Hubs, Pollicy are launching the DATAStrong program for East Africa.
- DATAStrong is a comprehensive data skills program targeted at civil society in East Africa (Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania).
- The program includes a 5-day interactive and participatory workshop in Kampala, Uganda on 7–11th May, 2018. The workshop is a step towards building a resilient community that is able to use data-driven visualizations and storytelling to bolster advocacy and rapidly respond to challenges posed by shrinking civic spaces in the region.
DATAStrong is unique in that the program offers a tailored curriculum, site visits and virtual mentoring in addition to bringing together organizations from throughout the region to better assess the current challenges and co-creatively develop a community that can support one another. We tailor the training programme to suit all participants and make sure everyone will leave feeling inspired and armed with brand new skills to help them do effective data driven advocacy.
DATAStrong will select 10 organisations from Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania to participate in the skills building workshop. The program will focus on organisations from 3 thematic areas:
– LGBTQ Community
– Minority Groups
– Aging Populations
- This program is fully residential and all participants are expected to be present for the entirety of the workshop. All airfare, lodging and meals will be covered by the program.
