What is advocacy?

“Advocacy is a process to bring about change in the policies,
laws and practices of influential individuals, groups and
institutions.”
Individuals and groups have always tried to influence people
in power, in their private lives and as part of their work.
Advocacy work takes on many shapes. It is possible
to advocate for ourselves or for other people. Almost all
NGOs and CBOs already have had some experience of doing
advocacy work, even if they do not realize it, or do not use the
word ‘advocacy’.  Advocacy can support other approaches by gaining
the assistance of people in power and changing the social
environment in which we work.
It is important to have a clear understanding of the differences between advocacy and other social development approaches such as information, education and communication (IEC) and community mobilisation.
Advocacy work can target people with influence at all levels,
from a district level government official to the International
United Nations Secretariat.

    Hello admin. I came to your “Advocacy Communication without Borders” page via Google but it was difficult to find as you were not on the first page of search results. This means you are missing out on a ton of web traffic from the search engines. I have found a website which offers to dramatically increase your rankings and traffic to your site: http://venueseo.com/7-day-free-trial. I managed to get close to 1000 visitors per day using their services, you could also get lot more targeted traffic from search engines than you have now. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care.

  2. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the long
    run and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this put up
    and if I may I want to counsel you some interesting things or advice.
    Maybe you can write next articles regarding this article.
    I wish to learn more things about it!
