This guide was developed to help address an agglomeration of factors disabling the optimum performance of Ward Committees and the pulling together of all municipal stakeholders.
Through step by step guidance this pool of stakeholders i.e. Ward Committees, Izinduna, Community Development workers, Community Policing Forums, Health Workers, Councillors, Chiefs, Pastors, NGO’s and Businesses, will in turn ensure that local government plays it’s role in meeting people’s basic needs and in building a society in which every person plays a meaningful and valued part. Some of the many skills this guide will help capacitate participants in are the:
- Communication protocols;
- Understanding ones role in relation to other stakeholders;
- Understanding participatory democracy;
- Applying problem solving skills.
