Two Day Training on "Social Mobilization" at Islamabad (September 11-12, 2014)

Two Days Training On Social Mobilization September 11-12, 2014, Islamabad, PakistanImportance of Social Mobilization (SM) is catalytic for the success of the development projects’ objectives and to ensure sustainable outcomes through change in behavior of the people—the primary stakeholders. SM is a key instrument developed and used by international public organizations like World Bank, UN, FAO and others and this tool also played key role in achievement of the objectives of social changes at grassroots i.e. community level. For example, Grameen Bank would never have become a model of microfinance if SM was not used to introduce its core philosophy to people needing micro financing. Behavior change is ensured only through two platforms: Advocacy and SM. Advocacy techniques are used to ensure changes in policies while SM is the only viable tool to ensure changes at grassroots level. This training is for all those who are key role players in Social Mobilization—the continuous process to sustainable development.
