The Challenge is a unique approach to building communications capacities of grassroots CSOs/NGOs.  Participants claim points for pre-defined communications activities (i.e., setting up a blog, holding a beneficiary input event, etc.).  Points will be aggregated over 4 months and top performers will be awarded prizes.  Periodic networking and consultation opportunities will be made available as well.   

NWADO will be providing all administrative and logistical support, while SIRDEP will support in an advisory role.  The project is funded by VSO Cameroon’s Action Learning Program. 

SIRDEP is seeking national and international communication/networking professionals to commit 2 hours for a Skype conference call.  The purpose is to provide participating CSOs with networking experience and training opportunities.
