At Network AID, we apply a proven methodology of Citizen Voice Action & Recognition (CVAR); is a responsibility base level advocacy methodology that that transforms dialogue between rights holders and duty bearers in order to improve services like livelihood, access to pro-poor micro finance, healthcare, education, and governance services which impact the daily lives of youths, persons with disability, illiterate women, children and their families. The goal of Citizen Voice and Action is to improve accessibility and quality of public service delivery through collaborative, non-confrontational dialogue between service users, government, and service providers. Service Users are empowered to monitor and seek accountability for service delivery and to take individual collective responsibility for the sustainability and utilisation of the services.
CVAR is based on the view that each citizen especially, illiterate women, youth, persons with disabilities and children are at the centre and has the right to hold each other into account and the government for not fulfilling its commitments. (Users + Providers = Accountability)
