EC Sangoco workshop collThe Black Sash Port Elizabeth Regional Office recently conducted a follow up workshop for 16 SANGOCO Nelson Mandela Metropole members. The focus was on understanding advocacy in the context of social and economic problems in the province.

The group identified problems such as housing, unemployment, safety and security, lack of access to basic services, and lack of community participation and accountability. They then workshopped the process of developing action plans that included identifying specific problems, setting goals to solve these, involving other relevant stakeholders, and setting time frames.
