Participatory Local Governance and Public Accountability Project

The Participatory Local Governance and Public Accountability Project (LOGPAP) seeks to ensure that women and youths are able to lead socio-economic change and promote non-ethnically aligned cohesion in Hwange district. The project recognizes the role of women, as mothers and first line opinion makers, and the youths, as future leaders, in shaping a progressive and cohesive society.

The project seeks that citizens, particularly marginalized women and youth, in poor rural communities in Hwange, are empowered to participate in decision making structures, participatory planning and budgeting and inclusion of community generated priorities into Schools and RDC budgets.
