Members of Parliament Connect – #FarajaMPConnect
There is a constant need to empower our Members of Parliament with strategic communication skills to enable them to project policy issues to their constituencies in the 21st century.
Through the MP-Connect program, we build bridges and transfer knowledge across sectors through constructive dialogue using traditional and modern public engagement tools. Our approach helps catalyse good governance, public service leadership, and business development. These have led to the National Youth Parliaments and East African Youth Parliaments
The project is aimed at strengthening effective community communication & engagement at grassroots, national, international and online levels, increasing social attention and promoting accountability and civic engagement to restore balance and respect in our governance systems.
Through this, MPs and their teams develop digital and modern social entrepreneurial skills to help them increase effective community interventions that will eventually create economic empowerment.
Lastly, the project Faraja Africa Foundation will help MPs strengthen partnerships in their constituencies for collective impact. This will mainly be between parliamentarians and other stakeholders at national, regional and international levels to strategically address public service and governance issues, human capital, and economy and competitiveness.
