Support democratic change in Swaziland!

The Swaziland group is looking for new active members to support their work and democratic movements in Swaziland.
01. februar 2018

Afrika Kontakt’s Swaziland group has supported the democratic grassroots movements in the absolute monarchy of Swaziland during the past 10 years. Through development projects and advocacy work, we strengthen the pro-democratic forces in Swaziland and create opportunities to change the political and economic reality of the country.
One of our partners, Swaziland United Democratic Front (SUDF), works towards creating democratic reforms in the country by strengthening the democratic culture and mobilizing supporters for a fairer distribution of power and resources. We support our partners with strengthening their capacity whereas our partnership is based on mutual respect and solidarity.

We have recently received sustained funding from the Danish Civil Society Fund (CISU). Therefore, we are looking for new people to monitor and implement our new project.

As part of our working-group, you will:

  • Work closely with a social movement in Swaziland
  • Gain experience in managing a project with the Danish Civil Society Fund (CISU)
  • Plan and carry out partner visits – yes, we travel to Swaziland!
  • Work with political campaigns on human rights and democracy

We are looking for people who:

  • Are interested in bottom-up approaches to international development
  • Want to learn about project work, including financial administration and assessment
  • Have an interest in the Southern Africa region
  • Want to go on a start-up visit to Swaziland

As an activist in the Swaziland group, you get hands-on experience with project development and implementation, campaigning and lobbying, as well as the opportunity to work closely with civil society organizations in Swaziland.
