Situation and general information on the Project:
The development of professional capacity, civic initiatives, coalitions and networks at the regional and local levels is a pressing concern since the progress in overcoming the systemic corruption in Ukraine is directly linked with the neutralization of corrupt practices at the local level.
The activists lacking professionalism in the form of relevant knowledge and practical skills are unable to deal with all forms of corruption and doomed to failure. The success of any anti-corruption campaign depends on the capability of activists to use the anti-corruption tools and effectively cooperate between each other and the government.
The challenge lies in a significant gap between the activity and professionalism in the regions. Only a small number of professional teams, most of which are located in Kyiv, have the necessary skills.
A number of local workshops on combating corruption have been completed already. The results of those initiatives were not that encouraging. We believe their weakness lies in the absence of the follow up actions.
Therefore, the efforts of this project will be focused on the introduction of a new model of training for regional activists, namely the civic education program of a systemic and periodic nature coupled with the mentoring and teambuilding strategies. Besides, the project provides for joining the activists, that participate in the training process, into networks in order to immediately start the implementation of combined anti-corruption projects under the coordinating efforts of the mentor.
Project purpose: To support the development of professional skills for regional activists and organizations in order to effectively combat the corruption at a local level.
