On March 15, in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, AFEW International together with a local partner “Ishonch va Hayot!” organized an advocacy training for Uzbek NGOs working with vulnerable groups such as people living with HIV, people with disabilities, people who use drugs, women, girls, and migrants. The training aimed at strengthening their capacities to advocate for the respect of human rights more effectively.

Representatives of 9 organizations developed their skills in identifying the advocacy problems, selecting the audience and the most effective ways of communicating, developing the advocacy messages, and implementing the advocacy plan.

The training was organised in the framework of the project “Advocating vulnerable groups’ rights through a stronger civil society in Uzbekistan”, funded by the European Union.

For reference

Since February 2022, ISHONCH VA HAYOT, in partnership with AFEW International and with financial support from the European Union, are implementing the programme “Advocating vulnerable groups’ rights through a stronger civil society in Uzbekistan”.

The project is dedicated to empowering underserved groups in Uzbekistan, such as people vulnerable to discrimination – women, people with disabilities, people living with or at high risk of HIV and migrants, and to protecting their rights and freedoms through strengthening and building local CSOs’ own organisations and capacities, thereby strengthening civil society in Uzbekistan.
